State Launches New Online Workforce Tax Credit Application Process

The Department of Labor and Industrial Relations have developed an online portal for businesses to apply for the Workforce Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC).  WOTC is a federal program that makes tax credits available to employers who hire veterans and individuals with significant barriers to employment.
 
“The department receives nearly 400 certification requests a month for the tax credit,” said DLIR Director Linda Chu Takayama.  Using the WOTC eApplication service, employers fill out online forms and their requests are immediately entered in to the processing queue.  Employers can also monitor the status of their requests on a personalized dashboard.
 
The WOTC eApplication centralizes the processing of requests and serves as a repository for supporting documentation, all of which results in improved efficiency in processing.  For more information, contact the DLIR:
