Work Opportunity Tax Credit

This includes people with disabilities and veterans.

The maximum amount of tax credit for employees who worked 400 or more hours of service is:

$2,400 or 40% of up to $6,000 of first year wages for qualifying individuals.

$9,600 or 40% of up to $24,000 of first year wages for certain qualified veterans.

A 25% rate applies to wages for individuals who work at least 120 hours but less than 400 hours for the employer.

To claim the credit, an employer must first get certification that an individual is eligible. Employers do this by submitting IRS Form 8850, Pre-screening Notice and Certification Request for the Work Opportunity Credit, to their state workforce agency within 28 days after the eligible worker begins work. Employers should not submit this form to the IRS. They should contact their state workforce agency with questions about Form 8850.
