  • Work Opportunity Tax Credit (“WOTC”) screening was a time-consuming, manual process that often wasn’t completed before a candidate received a job offer — a requirement to receive the tax credit.

How ADP Helped

  • After implementing the ADP SmartCompliance Tax Credit Solution, the WOTC screening process now takes place when a candidate applies for a job. It is fully automated, saving time and helping Big 5 achieve close to a 100% WOTC screening rate.
