WOTC Wednesday: What is the Most Popular WOTC Target Group?

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

Today’s WOTC Wednesday question: What is the most popular WOTC Category or Target Group? 

CMS Responds:  It’s actually a pretty easy question. SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program/Food Stamps) represents 65% of all the tax credits we get because of people that are on SNAP or Food Stamps. That’s followed by TANF, which is Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, and then hiring the Veterans back into the workforce. SNAP is number one.
