Work Opportunity Tax Credit

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a Federal tax credit available to employers who hire and retain individuals with barriers to employment.

Businesses can get tax breaks for hiring from these target groups:

  • Veterans
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Recipients
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
  • Food Stamp Recipients
  • Designated Community Residents (living in Empowerment Zones or Rural Renewal Counties)
  • Vocational Rehabilitation Referral
  • Ex-felons
  • Supplemental Security Income Recipients
  • Summer Youth Employee (living in Empowerment Zones)
  • Long Term Unemployed (LTUR)
