The Work Opportunity Tax Credit known as #WOTC is a federal tax credit available to employers who hire individuals from disadvantaged groups of workers.
So what does CMS know about WOTC, that most employers don’t?
- WOTC only applies to New Hires, No Rehires are Eligible.
The bottom line is, if you don’t screen your new hires for eligibility, you will miss out on tax credits. That’s something we help with. By integrating the WOTC Screening process with iRecruit, you can automate, save time, and identify potentially qualifying candidates.
- You Have 28 Days To Submit WOTC Forms.
There’s a 28-day window from the day you hire someone to submit the WOTC survey to your State Workforce Agency. If you miss that 28 day window, you will miss out on potential ax credits.
- WOTC is supported by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
And they strongly encourage employers to use this little known tax credit. In April 2020, they took the unusual step of issuing a formal opinion letter.
