WOTC Questions: How Does WOTC Work with Seasonal Hires?

At CMS, as Work Opportunity Tax Credit “WOTC” subject matter experts and service providers since 1997, we receive a lot of questions via our website and through the webcasts we attend. This week’s WOTC Question comes from one of our recent webinars:

If a company hires seasonal help and they layoff the seasonal employees, can they claim the credit for the same people for more than 1 year?

CMS says: in this case the employer can only claim the WOTC credit for eligible employees once, the first time the invididual(s) are hired. The Work Opportunity Tax Credit is not available for re-hires or returning employees.
