Renewing WOTC Is Our Priority

As Congress reconvenes tomorrow they walk in the door to over 50 expired tax provisions that could postpone the start of the tax season. The business community remains unsettled not knowing how to prepare for the end of the financial year. We were advised to wait until the election was complete to bring such issues to our Congresspeople and we have done just that. But, it's time to tell Congress what we need and what we expect.

"Our goal is to get WOTC enacted in the EXPIRE bill early-on in the lame duck session so as not to be drawn into talks on the budget and the rest. We have grounds to press this because a delay to December will undoubtedly impact and delay the IRS tax filing season.

We have the White House supporting WOTC and other extenders in the EXPIRE bill. We have Senate Majority Leader Reid and Republican Leader McConnell as long-time supporters of the extenders who voted for the EXPIRE bill."

-Paul Suplizio, WOTC Coalition

WOTC Solutions, along with the WOTC Coalition is pressing upon members of Congress the urgency of passing the tax extenders. We continue to represent our peers and clients in order to be heard. If you would like to speak to your representative directly on this issue, please get in touch and we can point you in the right direction.
