Work Opportunity Tax Credit

WOTC Optimization Program

WOTC (Work Opportunity Tax Credit) is a federal tax credit available to small business employers, both large and small. The credits are designed to offset Federal income tax liabilities. When the WOTC program is executed the right way, employers can capture enough tax credits to significantly reduce, or even eliminate, their Federal income tax liabilities. (And if your business was formed using a flow-through-entity, like a S-corp or LLC, then the credits could flow-through to the owner’s K-1).

Executing the WOTC program is simple and easy with the right provider. Rockerbox screens an employers new hires to determine if the new hire satisfies one of nine criteria. If the new hire satisfies one of the criteria, our team of tax credit experts work with specific government agencies, behind the scenes, to capture the tax credits.

WOTC Benefits

Once captured, tax credits can be used to eliminate Federal income tax liabilities and thus improve cash flow.

As an owner, you can walk into your ownership/investor group, or board, and tell them you have created additional cash for the company without eliminating expenses or adding new products/solutions. With cash in hand, you can use the cash to grow the business.
