Tax Alert: Veteran Hiring Incentives

During this year’s Super Bowl, you may have seen this commercial highlighting Google’s Job Search for Veterans initiative. Veteran hiring brings highly skilled individuals into the workforce, and is an important initiative that is incentivized both at the federal level through the Work Opportunity Tax Credit Program as well as at the state level through various veteran hiring incentive programs.

We are writing to remind you that First Advantage works to secure various state veteran hiring incentive programs on behalf of our clients. Examples of these programs include the Arizona Credit for Employing National Guard Members, the Washington Credit for Hiring Unemployed Veterans, and the Wisconsin Veterans Employment Grant Program. These programs offer the potential of thousands of dollars in credits, reimbursements, or grants, and may apply to veteran hiring initiatives that you are already engaging in.

We are here to help you navigate these state veteran hiring programs, and are happy to discuss their potential applicability with you and your business any time. To chat more about your use of these programs, be sure to contact your First Advantage Tax Account Manager today.
