WOTC Wednesday: If We Hire Temps Can We Claim WOTC?

CMS’s Brian Kelly answers your questions about the Work Opportunity Tax Credit.

Today’s WOTC Wednesday question:  If We Hire Temps Can We Claim WOTC?

CMS Responds: We have a WOTC Question that is regarding the temporary agencies. “If we hire temporary employees for 90 days can we claim the WOTC on those 90 days or not until we directly hire them?” Well the temporary service would be the employer at this time. However, if you then choose to hire that candidate they are going to be considered a new hire because it’s going under your Federal ID number. So, you can also obtain a tax credit for hiring that person after you hire them.
