Employment Incentives


Federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit

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, such as veterans, public assistance recipients, or ex-felons. The credit amount for WOTC can range from $1,200 to $9,600 for each qualified new hire, depending upon the new hires' WOTC target group.
