Work Opportunity Tax Credit

Want to help someone find much-needed employment while reducing your federal income tax liability? The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal tax credit incentive that benefits both employers and qualified workers.

WOTC helps targeted employees move from economic dependency to self-sufficiency while earning a steady income and becoming contributing taxpayers. Benefits to the hiring business include:

  • You make the final hiring decision on candidates presented.
  • Minimal paperwork is needed to claim the tax credit.
  • You can hire as many qualified employees as you need.
  • Hire from several qualified groups, including veterans.
