WOTC is a federal program that provides tax savings to employers who hire people from certain target groups, including public assistance recipients, veterans, youth and ex-felons.
The purpose of this program is to enable these individuals to gradually move from economic hardship to steady employment, while participating employers are rewarded by being able to lower their federal income tax liability. Tax credits are available from $1,200 up to $9,600 depending on the category.
For more information, please contact John Waters, State WOTC Coordinator, at John.M.Waters@Illinois.gov, or at 312-793-2913, (Fax) 312-793-1778.
