The Benefits of Work Opportunity Tax Credit Work opportunity tax credit (WOTC), needless to say, offers huge benefits to employers like you. Unfortunately, not a lot of employers know about the benefits of WOTC. Some claim they do not know enough about the whole concept of tax credit so they do not pursue anymore—even though tax credits such as WOTC can mean lots of savings for the company. Some are daunted by the paperwork needed to process their WOTC applications. Others complain about the process that may prove to be too time-consuming for them and therefore might affect their focus in operating the company. These reasons are perfectly understandable. But there are two immediate benefits WOTC can offer employers like you, benefits that are more than enough for somebody to reconsider. WOTC may result in lots of savings Savings.Lots of them.
