The Work Opportunity Tax Credit is a Federal tax credit available to employers* to hire and retain individuals from ten target groups with significant barriers to employment.
Employers claim billions in tax credits each year under the WOTC program. There is no limit on the number of individuals an employer can hire to qualify to claim the tax credit, and there are a few simple steps to follow to apply for WOTC.
This can make you eligible to receive a tax credit of between $2,400 and $9,600 depending on the qualifying category/target group.
Employers can create tax credit savings by using the Work Opportunity Tax Credit when they are hiring. Depending on how many people you hire, the tax credit savings can be quite significant.
Between 10-15% of New Hires may fall into one of the qualifying categories for WOTC. If you hire 100 people annually, and 10 – 15% of those new hires qualify, you may be able to obtain a tax credit of between $24,000 – $36,000.
