Employer Tax Credits
 

Among the many other benefits listed above, hiring individuals with intellectual disabilities also yields tax breaks (for you as an Employer).  

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a Federal Tax Credit available to employers for hiring individuals from certain “Target Groups” (such as those in Network 1, Inc.’s Supported Employment Program).  There is no limit on the number of individuals an employer can hire in this Target Group, to qualify and claim the tax credit.
