New Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) Filing Guidance Published – DOL 9061 Form
New guidance has been issued by the Department of Labor regarding use of the updated WOTC form 9061, “Individual Characteristics Form (ICF)”. In TEGL 9-15 , the DOL informs employers and their agents that starting on Feb 16, 2016, or 90 days from the TEGL issuance, all employers and their agents must use the updated versions of the 9061 or 9062 forms.
Transition Relief Period for SWAs and Employers. From now until 90 days after the issuance of this TEGL, employers and their representatives can use either the newly approved ETA Forms 9061 or 9062 (with the August 31, 2018, expiration date) or the expired forms (with the June, July, or August 2015 expiration date) to request certifications for their new employees. After the 90 day transition period, SWAs should not accept the expired forms. ETA is granting a transition period that allows employers to continue to file with the SWAs the expired ETA Form 9061 or 9062 with the June 30, 2015, date.
Equifax clients do not need to take any action to continue identifying and capturing available WOTC tax credit opportunities.
The updated version of the 9061 with and expiration of August 31, 2018 can be found here.
