WOTC Questions: Is it 28 days from hire or from their first day?

Is it 28 days from hire or from their first day?

At CMS, as Work Opportunity Tax Credit (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.

CMS Says: This question refers to WOTC’s 28 Day Rule. The 28 days begins from the first date the new employee begins working for you, earning a wage. It does not include any unpaid training time. CMS recommends that you file your WOTC “paperwork” with us on a daily or weekly basis in order to make sure you do not miss out on any potential tax credits.
