Improve Your Chances of Being Hired.. The Work Opportunity “Tax Credit (WOTC) can help you get a job!”

Vets,Ex-Offenders (Felon’s), TANF  on special Programs,(Temporary Assistance to Needy Families)

If you are in one of the “target groups” an employer who hires you can receive a federal tax credit of up to $9,000. This tax credit may give the employer the incentive to hire you for the job.

These are the target groups of job seekers who can qualify an employer for the WOTC:

  1. Qualified recipients of Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF).
  2. Qualified veterans receiving Food Stamps or qualified veterans with a service connected disability who:
    • Have a hiring date which is not more than one year after having been discharged or released from active duty OR
    • Have aggregate periods of unemployment during the one year period ending on the hiring date that equal or exceed six months.
  3. Ex-felons hired no later than one year after conviction or release from prison.
  4. Designated Community Resident – an individual who has attained ages 18 but not 40 on the hiring date who reside in an Empowerment Zone, Renewal Community, or Rural Renewal County.
  5. Vocational rehabilitation referrals, including Ticket Holders with an individual work plan developed and implemented by an Employment Network.
  6. Qualified summer youth ages 16 through 17 who reside in an Empowerment Zone, Enterprise Community, or Renewal Community.
  7. Qualified Food Stamp recipients ages 18 but not 40 on the hiring date.
  8. Qualified recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
  9. Long-term family assistance recipients.

If you are in one of these groups, let the employer know that you are a member of a WOTC qualifying group. You and the employer must complete the necessary forms on or before the day you are offered work, so you should let the employer know when you first apply or when you are being interviewed.

You can get more information and register for job referrals at EDD Workforce Services locations.
