New Illinois Law Give Tax Breaks for Businesses Hiring Ex-Felons


Governor Pat Quinn has signed legislation aimed at making it easier for felons to find work once they’re out of prison.

 

One new law creates a state income tax credit for businesses of $600 to $1500 for each ex-offender they hire.

 

Another will make it easier for some former criminals to have their records expunged.

 

Quinn signed the laws at a church in a Chicago neighborhood where it is estimated that 70% of men age 18 to 45 are ex-felons.
