The WOTC (Work Opportunity Tax Credit) can be used to reduce your taxes. It is a Federal credit calculated off your payroll and is based on you hiring certain hard to employ target groups.
If you hire a person who belongs to one of the following groups, you can obtain the credit:
Designated Community Resident
Food Stamp Recipient
Supplemental Security Income
Long Term Family Assistance
Service Connected Disabled Veteran
Vocational Rehabilitation Referral
The credit, although generous, requires a substantial amount of pre-hiring certification and follow-up.
If you are interested in starting a hiring process that includes WOTC application processing. Contact Julie at Kallas and she will send you a package of procedures.
