Work Opportunity Tax Credits (WOTC) Services
Leveraging technology to help pursue value for clients
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.
