You will also increase value to business customers by learning about the lesser-known Work Opportunity Tax Credits (WOTC). WOTC helps businesses earn tax credits when they are hiring. An average 10-15% of all new hires may qualify, earning the employer a tax credit of $2,400 - $9,600. Real money. Real value.
The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) program is a federal government initiative designed to increase employment opportunities for people who typically experience certain barriers to employment. Eligible employers receive a federal income tax credit that reduces its federal income tax liability. Unused credits can be carried back one year and carried forward for 20 years. Often thought of as administratively burdensome, the WOTC program has often been overlooked by employers. Please click here for details.
  • This unique program is under IRS legislation, but administered by the Department of Labor which often confuses tax accountants and employers.

Interestingly enough most companies, accountants and employers are potentially missing out on millions of dollars in tax credits by not taking advantage of the WOTC program, and are not educated about the “28 Day” rule or the appropriate filing procedures.
Learn how to add value to your CPA services, and take advantage of the billions dollars that are available today through the WOTC Tax Credit program.
