 Hire a veteran

You can save money on your federal taxes when you hire certain workers through the Work Opportunity Tax Credit program.

Eligible workers include veterans, food stamp and welfare recipients, recipients of Supplemental Security Income, ex-felons and at-risk youths.

For 2012, Congress has authorized the tax credit only for certain categories of military veterans. For example, you can receive as much as $2,400 for a qualifying non-disabled veteran and up to $9,600 for a disabled veteran.

Employers must receive a certification from the Employment Security Department to deduct the credit on their annual tax returns. For more information on the credit, visit the department’s website, call 800-669-9271 or contact a WorkSource business representative.
