When it comes to the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, WOTC, timing Is everything! You may have heard of the 28 Day Rule. This is a critical factor with WOTC processing. Your WOTC surveys from new hires have to be completed and submitted to the State Workforce Agency/Department of Labor (SWA) within 28 days of the new hire’s start date. One day later and you’ve lost out on a potential tax credit.
This is something we try to impress upon our customers as often as possible. We don’t want to see tax credits fall through the cracks, and we want it to be as easy as possible to make sure that all employees stay compliant. To do this we recommend including the online WOTC survey as part of your new hire paperwork, with or without iConnect.
