The IRS is providing relief to certain employers claiming the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC). Specifically, the agency has provided a 28-day extension of the deadline for employers claiming the WOTC to submit a request to a designated local agency to certify that an employee hired between Jan. 1, 2021 and Oct. 8, 2021, is a designated community resident or a qualified summer youth employee. To be certified as such, an employee must have a principal place of residence within an Empowerment Zone where the employee continuously resides. This transition relief allows employers to submit Form 8850 for these employees until Nov. 8, 2021. (Notice 2021-43)  Call or visit our website for more information!
