HOUSTON, July 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — alliantgroup Senior Vice President Rizwan Virani and alliantgroup Senior Associate Sean Lustyan will be hosting a free webinar entitled “Why More Businesses Will Take Advantage of WOTC in 2018” today at 12:00 pm CT. During the presentation, Virani and Lustyan will cover the numerous legislative and regulatory changes that have expanded Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) access to a variety of different businesses.

Over the past five years, the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) has undergone several modifications that have expanded the incentive to include new groups and demographics. Within this same time period, new regulations have also been introduced to make the credit more beneficial to U.S. businesses that hire veterans, the long-term unemployed, and members of certain historically disadvantaged groups. During the webinar, Virani and Lustyan will review these changes and explain why more companies are now claiming the WOTC.

This is a must-attend webinar for companies (or CPAs that have clients) in the following industries:

  • Hotel groups
  • Restaurant franchisees
  • Assisted living/nursing homes
  • Retail
  • Warehousing/distribution
  • Customer service/call centers
  • Staffing agencies

“Programs like the WOTC are of immense importance in getting our veterans and the historically disenfranchised back to work and into our economy,” said alliantgroup CEO Dhaval Jadav. “The WOTC is a win-win for employers and workers and I would encourage all businesses and their CPA advisors to attend this webinar to learn more about this vital government incentive.”
