Work Opportunity Tax Credit - WOTC

Update on WOTC Program Status for 2014

The legislative authority for the WOTC program expired on December 31, 2013. At this time, we have no indication whether Congress may pass legislation extending authority for the program beyond December 31, 2013. However, in the past when the program's authority lapsed, Congress has retroactively reauthorized the program back to the date of expiration.

In anticipation of possible retroactive reauthorization, employers should continue to submit WOTC applications for all target groups to State Workforce Agencies. For further information, please review Training and Employment Guidance Letter No. 8-13 or contact the WOTC coordinator in your state.
