CMS’s Brian Kelly answers your questions about the Work Opportunity Tax Credit.
Today’s WOTC Wednesday question: Are We Eligible for Employees Who Receive SNAP Benefits While Working?
CMS Responds: Are We (WOTC) Eligible for Employees Who Receive SNAP Benefits While Working or only if they go off? The answer is actually both, you can get a federal tax credit if the employee falls under the SNAP category. They’re not going to be taken off of SNAP* or anything of that nature. The whole program is designed to get these folks back into the workplace.
*(This may depend on the individual’s SNAP eligibility after being hired. As a rule, it does not affect the employer’s WOTC eligibility if someone continues to receive SNAP after being hired.)
