WOTC: Department of Labor Issues Updated 9061
Last week, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued an updated version of the 9061 “Individual Characteristics Form (ICF) for Work Opportunity Tax Credit.” Along with the 8850, or “Pre-Screening Notice and Certification Request for the Work Opportunity Tax Credit,” the 9061 must be submitted to the State Workforce Agencies to request a WOTC certification. The previous version of the 9061 expired on June 30, 2015. The DOL notes on the Employment and Training Administration website that either version of the 9061, both old and new, will be accepted for certification requests, and that the only difference between the forms is the expiration date.
Says the notation on the ETA website:
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has officially approved the Department of Labor’s (DOLS) request to extend WOTC forms (such as the ETA 9061, 9062, and 9063) without revisions for three years, giving the existing forms a new expiration date of August 31, 2018… Employers and their representatives can use the above referenced forms with the August 31, 2018 expiration date, or use form versions with an expired 2015 date, which SWAs should accept, since the forms have been extended without revisions.
