MITA Provides More Information on Tax Credits for Hiring Workers

Companies who hire unemployed workers this year (after February 3, 2010 and before January 1, 2011) may qualify for a 6.2 percent payroll tax incentive.  Employers can claim the tax credit on the federal employment tax return they file with the IRS.


The new law requires that the employer get a statement from each eligible new hire (W-11 attached) certifying that he or she was unemployed during the 60 days before beginning work or worked fewer than a total of 40 hours during the preceding 60-day period.

In addition to the payroll tax exemption, companies that retain their new workers for the entire year would be eligible for an additional business tax credit up to $1,000.
