Clarus Solutions and the SkillSource Group, Inc., the non-profit entity of the Northern Virginia Workforce Development Board, have partnered to make it easier for both jobseekers and employers to participate in the Work Opportunity Tax Credit program. The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal tax credit that encourages employers to hire targeted groups of jobseekers by reducing employers' federal income tax liability. We are requesting some information from you to help Clarus Solutions pre-screen you for potential eligibility for WOTC. Those that are certified as WOTC- eligible are more likely to be hired, and helps workers move from economic dependency into self-sufficiency as they earn a steady income.
Federal law requires the survey to be completed on or before the hiring decision date. All personal information you provide is secure, and will be solely used for purposes of the tax credit. It will not affect your job, wages, or taxes in any way. If you are considered potentially eligible for WOTC, you will be provided with a letter to hand to employers that states the potential savings they will earn by hiring you. This program is voluntary, but we appreciate your willingness to complete the following survey.
