Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC)

Paycor can help reduce your federal tax liability by up to $9,600 per new employee when you hire from groups who have faced barriers to employment, such as veterans, residents in areas designated as empowerment zones, and the long-term unemployed.

Remove Complexity

Paycor screens job candidates for WOTC eligibility and automates the payroll process on the backend. We also do the heavy lifting — maintaining accurate records, reporting tax credit activities, and meeting deadlines.

Employee Retention Credit (ERC)

Everyone is still trying to control costs and do more with less. The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) was created to reward businesses for keeping employees on their payroll during the pandemic, and it’s still available today.

Reduce Your Tax Bill

If your business experienced a decline in gross receipts of 20% year over year, you could claim a payroll tax credit of 70% of qualified employee wages (up to $10,000 per employee per quarter). Don’t miss out!
