WOTC Questions: Are 1099 Employees Eligible to Participate in WOTC program?

At CMS, as Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) experts and service providers since 1997, we receive a lot of questions via our website’s chat box that we try to answer:

Are 1099 Employees Eligible to Participate in WOTC program?

CMS Says: Employees who receive a 1099-MISC form are considered to be Independent Contractors, not employees. Since you are not paying taxes on their wages, they are not eligible under the WOTC program and you cannot obtain a tax credit when you hire them.
