What is WOTC

Get rewarded for your diverse hiring efforts

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal income tax credit that's available to businesses that hire members of groups who have consistently faced significant barriers to employment. Workstream and WOTC.com make it easier to participate in this program by handling the tedious part of the application process for you. Here's how it works:

Earn credits

Completed IRS forms are generated and sent to you and your CPA for filing.

A diverse workforce makes for the strongest workforce. We've been able to earn $260,000 in tax credits from 1,643 eligible employees. We would not have been able to do so without Workstream's WOTC.com integration. It's a win-win-win!
