Welcome to the Virginia WOTC Online System

Since its enactment by Congress in 1997, the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) Program has been integral to the creation of jobs by giving employers a tax credit when they hire qualified individuals who consistently face significant barriers to employment.

This Federal tax credit incentive program enables the new employees to gradually move from economic dependency into self-sufficiency as they earn a steady income and become contributing taxpayers, while participating employers are compensated by reducing their federal income tax liability.

The Virginia WOTC Online System is used by private sector businesses ("Employers") and companies who may act as the employer‘s agent ("Consultants"). The Va WOTC Online System allows these employers and their consultants to enter tax credit applications (and submit the applications, for legal forms holders), track the status of submitted applications, print letters and certifications, and view any power of attorney (POA) that may exist.
