WOTC Questions: Does an employee have to work an entire year for the credit to be granted?

Does an employee have to work an entire year for the credit to be granted? What if the employee only worked six months, but was able to make 120 hours?

At CMS, as Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) experts and service providers since 1997, we receive a lot of questions via our website. This week’s question came from our website.

CMS Says: The employee does not have to work an entire year for the Work Opportunity tax Credit to be granted. As long as they make it to 120 hours (3 weeks for most full time positions), you will be eligible to take a 25 percent credit on the first $6,000 in paid wages. If the employee reaches 400 hours, then you are eligible for a 40 percent credit of the first $6,000 in wages, or $2,400.
