We recognize that not every business has staff dedicated to Human Resources, let alone an HR department. If that sounds familiar, you may benefit from this resource.
The materials are designed to support your recruiting/hiring and employee relations' efforts. Feel free to download any of the available resources for your own use. All templates may be customized with your company logo and other information.
All information, forms and other resources available through HR Corner are intended as general help guides and should be modified as needed to meet all applicable laws and regulations.

- Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC)
- Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) Program
The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) program ended Dec. 31, 2011 for all target groups other than veterans.
As provided for by the Returning Heroes and Wounded Warriors Work Opportunity Tax Credit, hiring employers may claim a significant tax credit by adding U.S. veterans to the payroll before Jan. 1, 2013.
In addition to the one-year extension, the WOTC expands the definition of "qualified veteran," increases the maximum amount of allowable WOTC and extends the availability of the credit to tax-exempt employers.
Employers may qualify for federal income tax credits of $5,600 for veterans unemployed six months or more to $9,600 for hiring disabled veterans. Tax-exempt employers may qualify for credits of $3,640 for hiring veterans unemployed at least six months and $6,240 for disabled veterans. Employers may be eligible for a WOTC if they hire a qualified veteran receiving food stamps or whose service-connected disabilities do not meet certain other criteria.
Please Note: The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity will continue to accept applications for all expired target groups in anticipation of program reauthorization. However, issuance of certifications and denials for all other (non-veteran) WOTC target groups will be withheld pending further legislative action and guidance from the U. S. Department of Labor (there is no indication as to when, or if, such action will occur).
