WOTC Helps US Military Veterans
The best part of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit or WOTC program has been its emphasis on hiring veterans of the United States armed forces. In 2011, Congress passed the Vow to HIRE Heroes Act. This law expanded the ways that WOTC helps veterans find and keep civilian jobs.
There are now 5 distinct eligibility scenarios benefiting veterans, each generating a different amount of tax credit for employers who hire them. The tax credit amounts vary from $2,400 to $4,800 or go as high as $5,600 to $9,600 for each qualifying veteran. The specific amount depends on (a) why the veteran qualifies and (b) how much he or she earns in wages during the first year of their new job.
We love veterans and want to do our part ... by helping you do yours.
With our WOTC Made Easy (SM) and WebWOTC (SM) services, we ask the right questions to identify eligible veterans. We then reach out directly to the custodians of military records to obtain the paperwork thatâ€™s needed to prove their eligibility.
You probably already hire veterans. Weâ€™ll help you to know who they are and claim the tax credits you should already be earning. If you want to expand your recruitment of veterans, the benefit to your company can be enormous.
