What is this?
The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a Federal tax credit available to employers for hiring individuals from certain target groups who have consistently faced significant barriers to employment.
How does this benefit me?
WOTC helps qualified job seekers obtain employment by offering an incentive to employers who are considering hiring them. Qualified job seekers include vetrans, TANF recipients, SNAP (Food Stamps) recipients, Vocational Rehabilitation participants, ex-offenders, SSI recipients, and individuals who live in certain low income communities. You may opt-out if you do not wish to participate.
