Tax Credits

Tax Credits for Employers

Financial Incentives and Tax Credit Programs are available to employers to offset the costs/expense when hiring employees.

Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) Program

WOTC is a Federal tax credit available to employers who hire and retain veterans and individuals from other target groups with significant barriers to employment. Employers claim about $1 billion in tax credits each year under the WOTC program. There is no limit on the number of individuals an employer can hire to qualify to claim the tax credit, and there are a few simple steps to follow to apply for WOTC.

Federal Bonding Program

The Federal Bonding Program was created as an incentive to employers to hire “at-risk,” hard-to-place job seekers and may provide an employer a business insurance policy that protects an employer against loss of money or property due to employee dishonesty. The bond is good for six months for the amount of $5,000 at no cost.
