CMS’s Brian Kelly answers your questions about the Work Opportunity Tax Credit.
Today’s WOTC Wednesday question: What WOTC Screening Options Does CMS Offer?
CMS Responds: So, CMS actually offers three different screening methods. The first one being old-fashioned paper where they’re going and filling out the 8850 (and 9061) and sending them in to us.
The second service we provide is telecommunication – a call center that’s multi-lingual 24 hours a day, seven days a week. So, one of our representatives can actually perform the screening process via the phone, which is very popular.
And then our most-used screening option is our web-based portal. That’s a web portal that is made it very simple to use, the applicant can figure things out pretty simply. We do get a higher success rate of people using our web portal, and obtaining those tax credits.
So, I would say the number one way to screen employees is through our web portal.
