WOTC Wednesday: Is a Rehire Eligible for WOTC?

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

Today’s WOTC Wednesday question:  If I have a new hire who would have qualified and it’s after 28 days, can I release them and rehire them to meet the 28-day rule?

CMS Responds: If I have a new hire who would have qualified and it’s after 28 days, can I release them and rehire them to meet the 28-day rule? Sorry folks, legislation states that the WOTC program is only for new hires. so, they might be a new hire, but they’re over the 28-day start date. So that doesn’t work. They have to start work, we have to submit the documentation within 28 days of that start date for you to be eligible for a tax credit.
