From our #WOTCQuestions archive. “Am I Still Eligible for WOTC With Seasonal Hiring?”
Yes, all companies are eligible when hiring seasonal employees. If hiring employees for a specific period of time, especially part-time employees, remember that the minimum amount of hours to qualify for the Work Opportunity Tax Credit is 120 hours. If the employee reaches that minimum, you can potentially qualify for a 25% tax credit of their first $6,000 in wages paid. Keep in mind that the 28-Day Rule still applies. Additionally, seasonal workers may be returning employees. Returning employees will not qualify. Only workers who have never worked for your company before are eligible.
How WOTC works with iRecruit and iConnect
iRecruit and iConnect is a system that can practically pay for itself through the addition of these valuable tax credits. You can link your iRecruit and WOTC accounts easily. You can use iRecrut’s email templates to request that new hires complete the WOTC Survey online, via multi-lingual call center, or by paper. iConnect customers can include WOTC as part of all of their new hire documents.
iRecruit customers who would like to use WOTC can request the addition of WOTC through your account representative.
