The Work Opportunity Tax Credit is a federal program designed to encourage employers to hire individuals who might not otherwise find employment.
Employers who agree to hire individuals from a “target group” may qualify for a tax credit.
The “target group” includes “an ex-felon who has been convicted of a felony and has a hiring date which is not more than one year after the last date on which he was so convicted or released from prison.” It also may include, under certain circumstances, members of a family receiving food stamps or TANF benefits, SSI recipients and veterans.
There are no walk-ins. Call or e-mail for information or use the website which is very informative.
