WOTC Questions: What is a conditional certification and how do I know if I have one?

How to answer the question Check here if you received a conditional certification from the state workforce agency (SWA) or a participating local agency for the work opportunity credit.

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:

CMS Says: The WOTC Form 8850 Pre-Screening Notice and Certification Request for the Work Opportunity Credit asks the question “Check here if you received a conditional certification from the state workforce agency (SWA) or a participating local agency for the work opportunity credit.

A WOTC Conditional Certification is a ETA Form 9062 provided by an employment agency. This would be given to your employer to show that you “may be eligible for certification under the Work Opportunity Tax Credit.”

If you are not sure how to answer the question, or you have never received an ETA Form 9062 from an employment agency, please leave the question blank.
