Learn more about our offerings
If your company is entering new markets, acquiring or merging with another company, consolidating, divesting, or relocating facilities and operations, or simply growing, state and local incentives and tax credits can present a significant opportunity.
By exploring, securing, and implementing available credits and incentives, you can potentially: avoid paying unnecessary taxes, obtain immediate tax refunds, manage operational costs, improve earnings before interest and tax, net income, and shareholder value, and enhance the economic value of company initiatives. However, many different factors affect the specific types of credits and incentives that may be available to your company. Deloitte can help you sort through the potential benefits along with the related requirements.
Work Opportunity Tax Credits Services (WOTC)
Does your company claim the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (“WOTC”), a federal tax credit designed to encourage businesses to hire individuals from certain targeted groups? As the WOTC can range between $2,400 and $9,600 for each qualified employee, the total potentially available WOTC can be substantial for many companies. How well is your tax department equipped to address the WOTC application, certification, and computation processes? Deloitte’s WOTC Services and our supporting Technology for WOTC, or T4WOTCTM, offer many advantages over traditional approaches, from obtaining job applicant information and monitoring compliance metrics, through computing the amount of available WOTC.
