Making WOTC a Part of Your Onboarding Process

At iRecruit, we hear from people who visit our website all the time who tell us that when it comes to the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, it “takes too much time to manage.” Or “there’s too many rules to follow.” It’s true, Work Opportunity Tax Credit screening can be intimidating.

That’s where we come in. CMS-iRecruit has a dedicated service team that works on finding WOTC credits for our customers. The WOTC Service Team manages the entire administration process from receiving the 8850 and 9061 forms, screening those forms, and submitting qualified candidates to the respective state workforce agencies. They also track the hours and wages of qualified candidates to make sure you get the maximum credit (calculate your potential credit).

Make WOTC a Part of Your Onboarding Process

Adding WOTC to your onboarding process with new hires is simple. We offer 3 easy ways to include WOTC as part of your new hire “paperwork,” you can use one option, or a combination of all three, depending on your needs:

  1. Simple, paper-based 8850s and 9061 can be mailed, emailed, securely uploaded via FTP or faxed to us.
  2. 1-800-Call Center – Multi-lingual questionnaire taken over the phone. Takes only a few minutes for the employee to do.
  3. Secure Web Portal – You’ll provide a custom URL to your new hires to complete the questionnaire online. We’ve simplified the questions to make it easy, and Spanish translation is also available.


That’s it. CMS tracks every candidate. You can track in real-time the candidates and the value of your credit. We’ll also send you monthly reports. Our goal is to save you money, and make it easy to do.

Tax Credit Value

The value of WOTC Credits can vary per category, and can go as high as $9,600 for hiring qualified veterans. The average tax credit we see is typically around $2,400. There’s no limit to how many credits you can claim or qualify for in a single year (calculate your potential credit).

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 or texting templates to request that new hires complete the WOTC Survey online, via multi-lingual call center. iConnect customers can easily include WOTC screening as part of all of their new hire documents. You’ll have access to the activity via an online dashboard, which links to your iRecruit account.
