Application Process (Tuesday, January 25, 2022)

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services processes federal Work Opportunity Tax Credits (WOTC) Tax Credits in accordance with the business rules established by the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Department of Labor.

We are working hard to improve processing times. At this time, w
e can no longer accept emailed lists of applications that are currently in the certification/denial process. All applications will be processed in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience.

Pending applications (Friday, April 22, 2022)

Your Ohio WOTC team is currently working on the backlog.  We will be issuing decisions that are currently in the NAR/expired status that we have not received requested documentation on.  All other NAR/Expired applications will be put into "in review" for staff to manually make a decision.  What you will see over the next two weeks are applications that are normally decided overnight in pending status for an extra day or two.  Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any additional questions. I will continue to keep you updated on our progress.
