Employment department offering businesses nearly $10K for each new hire


The Oregon Employment Department is giving businesses a $9,600 tax credit for each new person they hire.

How? The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal tax credit that encourages employers to hire people facing barriers to employment. Qualifying individuals include some veterans​, individuals who have received government assistance through various programs, or simply those who have been unemployed for an extended period.

You’ll have a lower cost of doing business through your reduced federal income tax liability.

And thanks to your help, qualifying individuals will move from economic dependency to self-sufficiency, which has a lasting positive effect on your business and in our communities.
