WOTC Status Update
Both the House and Senate have passed a two month extension to the payroll tax cut.
While it was hoped that WOTC would be part of this conversation, ultimately the legislature
chose to focus only on the tax cut and not any of the tax extenders.
This two month extension does, however, force the legislature to renegotiate the payroll
tax cut early next year. It is a possibility that at that time the payroll tax cut
talks would also include WOTC and the extenders. For now, the core WOTC program will
enter hiatus on Jan 1, 2012 while the specific veteran provisions in the Vow
to Hire Heroes Act of 2011 will continue through 2012.
