WOTC is for You

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit or WOTC reduces the amount of federal income tax you pay. If you're an employer, it rewards you when you hire people experiencing certain "qualifying" situations at the time they're hired.

For example, if your company hires a US military veteran who has been unemployed for the past 6 months, WOTC will reward you with a federal income tax credit worth $5,600. The amount varies between $2,400 and $9,600 per qualifying employee, depending on why they qualify.

For most employers, 10% to 20% of their existing workforce would qualify, without any significant changes to the hiring process. In some places, the percentage is much higher.

But you do have to collect the right information and jump through the right hoops. That's what we do best. We make it easy and very valuable for you.

Recently, Larry King interviewed O.U.R.'s founder, Tim Ballard. Something we learned -- there are more than 35 million slaves in the world today, right now!

By SLAVES we mean people who are OWNED by someone else and forced by them to perform labor or sexual acts.
