WOTC Wednesday: What is the WOTC 28 Day Rule?

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

Today’s WOTC Wednesday question: What is the WOTC 28 Day Rule?

CMS Responds: Question we get a lot is “What is the 28-day rule?” Well the 28-day rule means that you have to screen the employee on or before their job offer date, and submit all the respective documents to the Department of Labor within 28 days of that employee’s start date. There’s no look back, so I can’t go back a year if I hired a bunch of people, it’s going forward. So its real important that if you are involved with the WOTC program that you submit all the respective information within 28 days. If you don’t, you lose that opportunity.
