About Mckenzie Chase and the WOTC Program

Mckenzie Chase Management’s history is rooted in the WOTC program, drawing on 30 years’ worth of experience. Mckenzie Chase Management was founded in 1982 by Evelyn Chase and Mack Mckenzie. After a hiatus in 1999, ownership was passed on to Mike Lancey. MCM’s goal is to help clients earn beneficial tax credits. The company focuses on services for a range of employers, particularly those in the agriculture, security, and hospitality fields.

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit program (WOTC) was introduced on October 1, 1996 to provide tax incentives for employers who hire individuals from specific target groups. People from these target groups have been identified by the U.S. government as having historically high unemployment rates. Through WOTC, employers can earn a tax credit per qualified employee; these tax credits can be applied to employers’ income taxes, reducing the amount they owe the IRS.
