WOTC Questions: If I have an employee who might qualify for more than one target group, can I double up on credits?

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: This is a great question, and it is so frequent for applicants to say they are qualified for more than one category when they are filling out the WOTC Forms. It’s not uncommon to see someone who is on SNAP Benefits also be long-term unemployed for example, or for a Veteran to live in an enterprise zone. Unfortunately, as an employer you can only take the credit once for each qualified employee. The State Workforce Agency (SWA) will determine which WOTC target group the employee is qualified under.
