Is the Job Creation Tax Credit Working?

Pennsylvania's Independent Fiscal Office is casting doubt on the effectiveness of a long standing tax credit.
The Job Creation Tax Credit, first established in 1996, provides employers one thousand dollars for each job created, and 25 hundred for hiring veterans or the unemployed. A study by the Independent Fiscal Office suggested the credit isn't having the intended effect, but the Dept. of Community and Economic Development disagrees, with an official saying the credit may need to be adjusted but should remain in place.
