    Employers generally can earn a tax credit equal to 25% or 40% of a new employee’s first-year wages, up to the maximum for the target group to which the employee belongs. Employers will earn 25% if the employee works at least 120 hours and 40% if the employee works at least 400 hours. Use the WOTC Calculator to see how much your business can earn in tax credits.

  • What are the Maximum Tax Credit Amounts?

    The maximum tax credit amounts depend on the new employee’s target group and the number of hours worked during the first year of employment. Click here for the maximum tax credits associated with each WOTC target group.
