Employee Retention Credit

Maximizing the ERC for Employers

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) came out in March of 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 crisis. Due to the timing, and its imprecise language, many companies overlooked this lucrative credit. There is a lot of confusion regarding the qualifying criteria for this credit. Additionally, employers who may not have been eligible for 2020 will find that they are for 2021. However, with potentially up to $26K available per employee, this credit is worth further analysis.

Every business was impacted by the pandemic and may qualify for the ERC. We have the expertise to make sure you capture every eligible credit.


WOTC Program

Maximizing Work Opportunity Tax Credits (WOTC) begins with the right partner.

The HII team is backed by over 30 years of experience, proprietary technology and processes unparalleled in the industry.

Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), a Federal Income Tax Credit authorized through December 31, 2019, incentives Employers to hire and retain disadvantaged populations from fourteen target groups. These target groups include qualified youth, veterans and the long term unemployed. Each qualified employee that is hired can generate up to a $9,600.00 tax credit in the first year of employment. The credit amount is equal to a percentage of the wages paid to employees, which can add up very quickly for your business. Annually, hundreds of millions of dollars in tax credits are left unclaimed. Hiring Incentives Inc. (HII) specialized in making sure that your company is not part of that statistic. Gaps in screening, follow up, and documentation hinder many employers from maximizing their Work Opportunity Tax Credits. Hiring Incentives Inc. can help you determine what your prospect for tax credits and incentives may be and help you qualify for WOTC so you can stay focused on growing your business.
