HIRE VETERANS AND EARN TAX CREDITS FOR YOUR BUSINESS The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a Federal tax credit available to businesses for hiring veterans. The VOW to Hire Heroes Act of 2011 extended and expanded the tax credit for veterans. Through WOTC, employers can receive up to $2,400 and $9,600 in tax credits by hiring: Veterans receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits; Veterans with a service-connected disability hired within 1 year of discharge or release from active duty; Veterans with a service-connected disability who are unemployed for at least 6 months; Veterans who have been unemployed for at least 4 weeks. Veterans who have been unemployed for 6 months or more. The WOTC only applies to new employees, and the qualified veteran must start work before January 1, 2013. Before claiming WOTC on a federal tax return, employers must first apply for and receive certification that the new hire is a veteran that meets the qualifications. To find more information on the WOTC program and how to claim the tax credit, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s WOTC website at www.doleta.gov/wotc and the IRS website at www.irs.gov/form8850 . Please visit www.benefits.va.gov/VOW for additional program information. Mail certification forms to the WOTC Unit not later than 28 calendar days after the Veteran begins work to Department of Labor, State Office Building Campus, Building 12, WOTC Unit, Room 200, Albany, New York 12240.
