Why Don’t More Businesses Take Advantage of WOTC?

In our experience, there are two reasons employers don’t claim their WOTC benefits: either they don’t know about the program or they don’t think it’s worth it. The Work Opportunity Tax Credit is a federal tax credit created in 1996 to help drive employment by putting disadvantaged workers back to work.

WOTC benefits are available to employers who hire individuals from one of nine targeted groups who frequently face barriers to employment. The amount of WOTC credit an employer receives is based on the amount eligible employees earn. So, there’s paperwork that has to be completed every month to screen applicants and report wages. We’ve seen countless businesses miss out on huge tax credits, simply because they don’t have the time or manpower to manage their WOTC program.

What is the Work Opportunity Tax Credit?

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal tax credit available to employers who hire individuals from one of nine groups that typically face barriers to employment.

Do tax-exempt companies qualify for WOTC?

WOTC is available to both large and small businesses, whether they’re taxable or tax-exempt.

How does an employer get WOTC benefits?

Work Opportunity Tax Credit benefits are based on the wages paid to qualifying employees. For taxable employers, WOTC benefits are claimed as a general business credit. For tax-exempt employers, the credit is applied to payroll taxes. 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.

Do employees benefit from WOTC?

No. The Work Opportunity Tax Credit is only available to employers.
