Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC)

WOTC is a federal hiring incentive available to organizations that hire individuals from certain targeted groups that face significant barriers to employment, including veterans, individuals with disabilities and long-term welfare recipients. Hiring these individuals can earn you tax credits ranging from $2,400 to $9,600 per qualified individual. We help you navigate the process by screening candidates for eligibility and filing the paperwork on qualified hires, saving you time and money.

State Hiring Tax Credits

Many states offer their own hiring tax credits, targeting groups similar to those targeted by the federal program. Capitalizing on these state hiring tax credits gives you additional savings. Our experts help you navigate the process, screen candidates and file the required paperwork.

Location Benefits

These negotiated and/or statutory tax incentives are offered to businesses to encourage economic development, often in designated areas or zones. We work in conjunction with your tax and real estate team to coordinate the necessary identifying and claiming procedures on local, state and national levels. We administer the entire process, from identification to application and retrieval - searching out, identifying and applying for all incentives that are advantageous to your business.

Many job seekers are WOTC eligible

Millions of dollars in WOTC incentives go unclaimed each year - even though employers are hiring from designated target groups. Check out this info-graphic to learn more about the wide range of eligible applicant populations.
