Giving someone a work opportunity may translate into a business tax credit for your client and greater stability for a family. The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal tax credit available to employers for hiring individuals from certain targeted groups who have consistently faced significant barriers to employment. The WOTC joins other workforce programs that incentivize workplace diversity and facilitate access to good jobs for American workers. The Consolidated Appropriation Act 2021 authorized the extension of the WOTC until Dec. 31, 2025.
Revenue Procedure 2023-33 sets forth the procedures under sections 30D(g) and 25E(f) of the Internal Revenue Code for the transfer of the clean vehicle credit or previously owned clean vehicle credit from the taxpayer who elects to transfer such credit to an eligible entity. These procedures will apply to transfers of credits after Dec. 31, 2023.
