Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC)

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) can offset your tax liability on a dollar-for-dollar basis. WOTC has two purposes:

  • To promote the hiring of individuals who qualify as a member of a target group
  • To provide a federal tax credit to employers who hire these individuals

An employer may qualify for a tax credit of up to $9,000 if the employee is a member of a designated target group and meets that group’s specific requirements.

The job seekers at the Employment Connection Center fall in one of the nine target groups that qualify for the WOTC. Contact an Employer Relations Specialist for more details. For more details on the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) visit the United States Department of Labor website.
