Reservation Homeless Hiring Tax Credit


To be eligible for the Homeless Hiring Tax Credit an employer must obtain a tentative credit reservation from FTB for each qualified employee. The employer must receive the credit reservation within 30 days of completing the New Hire Reporting Requirement with Employment Development Department.

Before you get started

  • Review the eligible employer information to see if your business and employee meets the requirements.
  • Gather the information you will need to complete the reservation.

Help with Reservation

When you request a reservation, you will first enter information about the employer. After you enter all required employer information, you will receive a confirmation screen. Print that confirmation and retain it for your records.

Next, you will enter information about your eligible employee. You will receive a confirmation screen for each employee that you should also print and retain for your records. Do not send either of the confirmations to FTB.

If you exit the system prior to getting a confirmation, you will have to re-enter any previously entered information. You cannot save a partially completed reservation to complete later.

You can request a reservation for any number of qualified employees at one time. However, once you exit the reservation system, you will need to re-enter the employer information before you can request a reservation for a new employee. FTB will only accept reservations submitted through this system.

Use the navigation buttons in the system to go back to change information. Once you have received a confirmation for either the employer or the employee, you cannot change the information.
