Are You Leaving Tax Credits on the Table?
The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal tax credit for employers who hire and retain individuals with significant barriers to employment including veterans, long-term unemployed, felons and others on state assistance programs like SNAP, TANF and SSI. If you have a Federal Tax liability and hire a high percentage of hourly employees then you should be screening for WOTC. You may be in a position to receive a WOTC tax credit!
WOTC reduces your company tax liability by up to $9,600 per qualified employee.
There is no limit to the number of tax credits you can claim.
However, many employers, even ones who are prime candidates for WOTC, fail to screen for WOTC. Why? Well, after gaining an understanding of who is eligible, employers must keep track of hours worked and salaries made, as well as learn how to apply for the credit. WOTC becomes just another confusing IRS form to complete.
Affiliated HR & Payroll can manage the WOTC screening process for you. That way you can secure those deductions without breaking a sweat.
