WOTC Questions: Can I still get credit if my employee only worked two weeks?

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 that we try to answer:

Can I still get credit if my employee only worked two weeks?

CMS Says: Unless they worked 120 hours over two weeks, unfortunately not. Even if the employee was eligible and you received certification, the value of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit is determined by how many hours the employee worked. For example, if someone worked 120 hours at $15 per hour, for a total of $1,800 in wages, because they reached 120 hours you would be eligible for a $450 tax credit for that person.
