    Tax Credits And Incentives

    It is very important in today's business to be able to take advantage of any resources available that can positively impact your bottom line. Tax credits and tax incentives are among those resources that are often overlooked. You may be thinking that filling out the forms and dealing with the paperwork related to tax incentives and credits will be too difficult or time consuming. The truth is that the paperwork is not very difficult at all, and there is a good chance your most successful competitors are already doing it.


    Work Opportunity Tax Credit
    WOTC is a Federal tax credit incentive that Congress provides to employers for hiring individuals from certain target groups who have consistently faced barriers to employment.

    This online version of Especially for Texas Employers is designed to be as easy as possible to use.  It is like an electronic book.  The book follows the format of the printed version as closely as possible, but can be a lot easier to get around in the online version than in the book, due to the many ways a user can navigate from topic to topic.  Note: the book is organized by articles and topics.  To scroll up or down, either use the up and down arrows on the scrollbar to the right of the text window, or else (and this is easier than using the mouse) click once in the text window and use the Page Down or Page Up keys to go down or up on the page.


    Staff with Texas Workforce Solutions Vocational Rehabilitation Services work with you to understand your business needs and provide customized services.  We help your employees become more aware of key disability issues, help you fill open positions at your business with qualified job seekers with disabilities, asses your workplace, job descriptions and recruitment and application processes to remove barriers, and provide training and accommodations assistance.  There is no fee for our services.
