Act now to help ensure your business is properly cleaned and disinfected to help prevent further spread of the novel coronavirus.

The Clean Start: Back to Work Tax Credit would incentivize businesses to properly clean and disinfect their facilities when “stay-at-home” restrictions are lifted, as well as help prevent further infections.

There is significant research demonstrating the coronavirus can survive on surfaces for days unless properly cleaned and disinfected. As a result, the combination of properly trained and certified cleaning personnel and cleaning products are critical in helping prevent the further spread of this virus once businesses are permitted to reopen.

Many businesses lack the expertise, products, or trained personnel to properly disinfect for coronavirus and other viruses. The Clean Start tax credit would help businesses, including commercial properties, ensure they provide a safe and sanitary environment for their workers and customers by providing a tax credit to train their existing staff on proper disinfection techniques, hire a certified professional cleaning company, and/or buy necessary cleaning products and equipment.

Please take a moment to contact your federal elected officials to request their support for the Clean Start: Back to Work Tax Credit as part of the next stimulus bill.
