WOTC Questions: Are Rehires Eligible?

As a seasonal landscaping business we frequently hire individuals who worked for us in previous years. Are they eligible for WOTC?

At CMS, as WOTC experts and service providers since 1997, we receive a lot of questions via our website. In the case of the above question, the sender did not provide their email address, so we were unable to reply directly to them. This is one of the more common questions (FAQ), so we thought we would share, and hopefully will help others too.

Unfortunately rehires are not eligible under the WOTC program.

Who Does Not Qualify For The WOTC Tax Credits:

  • Employers not covered by the Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA)
  • Relatives/family members of the employer
  • Individuals rehired by an employer
  • Individuals employed in Federally subsidized on-the-job training positions
