History of the WOTC Program

About the WOTC program:
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.
