Work Opportunity Tax Credit

Program Overview 

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federally-funded program that reduces the federal tax liability of private-for-profit and in some instances non-profit employers hiring new employees from eligible target groups. Credit amounts are based upon a percentage of wages paid to, and hours worked by, properly certified employees.

Program Dates: Congressional legislation governs the WOTC that is available to employers on a year-round basis. The current legislative authority ends on December 31, 2019.
