Work Opportunity Tax Credit. Broad Reaching Hiring Incentives for all Size Businesses.
As the economy improves, and the country’s largest number of veterans in almost 60 years returns home, the Federal WOTC program becomes an extremely attractive tax credit for all size companies.
Maximum credits can amount to $9,000 for long term welfare recipients, $4,800 for veterans, and $2,400 for those new hires that meet “standard criteria”.
Realizing that 7.5% – 20% of all new hires qualify for WOTC, most companies are looking at very meaningful federal income tax credits. New revenue can be brought straight to the bottom line, or used to a company’s strategic advantage. Also, WOTC credits can be carried forward 20 years and backwards one year.
Tax Credit Co. has worked with WOTC program rules since introduced in the Clinton Administration and can help you gain the maximum benefit from them.
