Workforce Opportunity Tax Credit
President Obama signed into law the new Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014 which extended the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) Program. This new legislation reauthorized WOTC retroactively to January 1, 2014 and applies to all employees who commenced work for the employer from January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014.
This legislation does not extend the WOTC authorization for individuals hired in 2015. Employers and/or their representatives (WOTC Consultants) are strongly encouraged to continue to submit WOTC applications on newly hired employees who commence work on or after January 1, 2015 in a timely manner (must be postmarked within 28 calendar days of the new employee's job start date of employment) to state workforce agencies for consideration of the tax credit.
