What is the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, and How Does It Work with iRecruit?

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal tax credit designed to incentivize employers to hire employees from certain target groups who have faced significant barriers to employment, such as veterans, individuals on public assistance, and ex-felons.

The “WOTC”  credit is available to eligible employers who hire individuals from these target groups and who meet certain requirements.

The amount of the credit is based on a percentage of the first-year wages paid to the eligible employee, with a maximum credit available per qualifying employee of around $2,400. This varies by target group.

How Does WOTC Work with iRecruit?

iRecruit has always offered WOTC screening as part of iRecruit. There are two direct integrated ways to use iRecruit with iRecruit:
