Work Opportunity Tax Credit

What is WOTC?

The federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) provide companies with an incentive of up to $9,600 for each eligible new hire from 11 targeted groups. In all likelihood, you’re already hiring from these groups, but the administrative burden of applying for the credits keeps many businesses from participating.

Targeted Groups:

  • Veterans
  • TANF Recipients
  • SNAP (food stamps) Recipients
  • Ex-Felons
  • Designated Community Residents
  • Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Supplemental Security Income Recipients
  • Summer Youth Employees

How much is the Tax Credit?

 Employers can earn a tax credit of between $1,200 and $9,600 per employee, depending on the target group of the new employee and the number of hours worked in the first year. Employees must work at least 120 hours in the first year of employment to receive the tax credit.

How it works:

Step One

Prior to an engagement, we will discuss your needs, survey your locations, and use your hiring data to provide an estimate of the WOTC tax credit potential for your firm. A written proposal is then submitted for your approval.

Step Two

Once you decide to engage us to manage your WOTC applications, we will supply all required forms to your designated locations and train your staff with the necessary procedures, the required forms, and the all important government imposed deadlines.

Step Three

When an application is completed  and received by us, we screen the forms to determine eligibility. We then mail all required forms with documentation to the required State Agency. Once we receive the certification notice from the State Agency, we begin to compile the tax credit data from the certified employees periodic payroll information.

Step Four

Quarterly and yearly WOTC reports are provided either online or on paper (or both) to your designated corporate staff and to all locations involved.

Step Five

Annually prior to the end of your fiscal year we issue a report containing all the information needed to file your company’s Federal Tax Returns and claim the tax credits.
