WOTC Questions: Is summer youth still around?

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: Summer is almost upon us, and yes, good news, the Summer Youth target group is still available to employers:

A “qualified summer youth employee” is one who:

  • Is at least 16 years old, but under 18 on the date of hire or on May 1, whichever is later, AND
  • Is only employed between May 1 and September 15 (was not employed prior to May 1st) AND
  • Resides in an Empowerment Zone (EZ), enterprise community or renewal community.
