Work Opportunity Tax Credit Program
Applying for the WOTC
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.
WOTC helps targeted workers move from economic dependency into self-sufficiency as they earn a steady income and become contributing taxpayers, while participating employers are able to reduce their income tax liability.
The maximum tax credit ranges from $1,200 to $9,600, depending on the employee hired.
Who Can Participate in the WOTC Program?
Employers that hire and retain veterans and individuals, meeting the criteria for the specified target group, can submit applications to claim tax credits. Current or rehired employees are excluded.
