Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC)

Provides an incentive to employers to hire and retain employees based on targeted groups, including social assistance recipients, veterans and qualified youth. Qualifying businesses can receive a tax credit of up to $9,000 per eligible employee during the first* year of employment.

As of January 1, 2007, the target groups for the WOTC program have been expanded. Please contact ADP TCS today to discover how your company can receive even more tax savings.


The WtW category within WOTC provides a credit for eligible employees during the first two years of employment. The credit provides an incentive to employers to hire and retain employees who have received long-term welfare and family assistance for 18 consecutive months, either through Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) or Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC).
