The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal tax credit in the United States 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 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 employee.
The average tax credit is around $2,400 and around 10-15% of new hires may be eligible.
