An employer that employs an apprentice under a federally registered apprentice agreement can take a credit against its income tax of up to $1,000 per apprentice. The apprentice must be employed for at least 7 months for the employer to take the tax credit. The credit is available for a maximum of 4 years for each apprentice. The law applies to employees beginning apprenticeships after 2007 (SC Code Sec. 12-6-3477).
