Work Opportunity Tax Credit
Now you can get an excellent employee – and a tax credit!
WOTC is a federal income tax credit for hiring certain target groups of workers. Individuals who are currently receiving rehabilitation services from the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, or completed services within 2 years of the hire date qualify.
The tax credit for new hires employed 400 or more hours is 40% of qualified wages for the first year of employment; the credit for new hires employed from 120-399 hours is 25%. Qualified wages are capped at $6,000. For new hires that work at least 400 hours, the tax credit would come to $2,400!
ADA & Reasonable Accommodation Guidance
We can answer your questions about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), or direct you to other beneficial resources. We can help you identify possible accommodations for people with disabilities who require accommodations to perform a job, or direct you to other beneficial resources. We can offer financial incentives for hiring and training DVR clients, and can facilitate tax credits.
Reasonable Accommodation —
Title I of the ADA requires an employer to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities who are employees or applicants for employment, except when such accommodation would cause an undue hardship. A toolkit is available online for more information.
