WOTC Questions: Can I Hire an Unemployed Family Member and Receive Credit?

Can I Hire an Unemployed Family Member and Receive Credit? I hired a family member who was unemployed for over 27 weeks, can I claim the WOTC credit?

At CMS, as Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) experts and service providers since 1997, we receive a lot of questions via our website.

CMS Says: No, unfortunately family members will not qualify under the Work Opportunity Tax Credit. In addition prior employees  who have previously worked for you are not eligible if you rehire them.
