Tax Credits for Hiring a Veteran The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a Federal tax credit available to employers who hire veterans and individuals from other eligible target groups with significant barriers to employment. Each year, employers claim over $1 billion in tax credits under the WOTC program. The success and growth of this income tax credit for business is beneficial for all who participate, while increasing America’s economic growth and productivity.
How WOTC Works For You
WOTC reduces an employer’s cost of doing business, requires little paperwork, and applying for WOTC is simple.
WOTC can reduce an employer’s federal income tax liability by as much as $9,600 per veteran hired.
There is no limit on the number of individuals an employer can hire to qualify to claim the tax credit.
Certain tax-exempt organizations can take advantage of WOTC by receiving a credit against the employer’s share of Social Security taxes.
