The VOW to Hire Heroes Act of 2011 allows employers to claim the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) if they hire qualified veterans to begin work before January 1, 2013. Though the amount of the credit depends on several factors, it can be as high as $9,600 per veteran for for-profit organizations and up to $6,240 for certain tax-exempt organizations.
