WOTC Questions: Does the screening need to happen before the person is hired or before they start work?

Does the screening need to happen before the person is hired or before they start work?

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 an employee!

CMS Says: As reported on the 8850: “The job applicant gives information to the employer on or before the day a job offer is made. If the employer believes the applicant is a member of a targeted group (as defined under Members of Targeted Groups), the employer completes the rest of the form no later than the day the job offer is made. Both the job applicant and the employer must sign Form 8850 no later than the date for submitting the form to the SWA.”
