Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC)

  • Qualified “summer youth,” that is, individuals 16 or 17 years old living in an empowerment zone
  • Individuals unemployed for at least 27 consecutive weeks who received unemployment compensation under state or federal law during that period
  • Members of families that receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits (food stamps)
  • Members of families that receive short- or long-term Temporary Assistance to Needy Families or Aid to Families with Dependent Children (welfare)
  • Qualified ex-felons or pardoned, paroled, or work-release individuals
  • Individuals who have completed or are completing vocational rehabilitation programs
