Congresswoman Watson Proposes Another WOTC Target Group

We reported earlier on Representative Bonnie Watson Coleman’s (D-NJ) bill to enhance WOTC for businesses that hire ex-offenders.

The Congresswoman is proposing an additional WOTC category to make “older long-term unemployment recipients” a new targeted group.

Like her previous bill, this bill also proposes to make all of WOTC permanent.

The difference between this bill and the existing long-term unemployment recipient category is that for qualified employees who are 55 or over, the credit would be up to $5,600 and would also be indexed for inflation.

Here is a press release from the Congresswoman’s office.
