Integrating JazzHR with WOTC.com

JazzHR is proud to partner with WOTC.com to help you more easily create, digitize, and send Work Opportunity Tax Credit documentation for the hires you make in JazzHR.

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal tax incentive that rewards private-sector employers for hiring from groups that have historically faced significant barriers to employment. To obtain these credits, employers must collect and submit eligibility information from new hires via form 8850.

WOTC.com streamlines this process by helping you to collect this new-hire information, identify all available credits and maximize the amount you receive. WOTC.com will also periodically send you pre-certification reports to help you identify candidates who are likely to receive WOTC credits. Don't have a WOTC.com account? Sign up for free!

Integrate JazzHR with WOTC.com to fully streamline this process by centralizing the collection and submission of new-hire information directly from JazzHR to the team at WOTC.com

To set up the integration in JazzHR:

Enter Your WOTC.com credentials

From JazzHR:

  1. Click Settings.
  2. Click Integrations.
  3. Scroll down to the Candidate Export Integrations block.
  4. Click Add Integration.

Set up WOTC.com Export Workflow Helpers

Once your WOTC.com account is integrated, you're able to start collecting candidate information. In order to take full advantage of the WOTC tax credit program you will want to follow these steps to add the WOTC export to each of your Active Workflows:

  1. Click Settings.
  2. Click Workflows.
  3. Click on the Title of the Workflow you want to edit.
  4. On the New Stage, click the Add button.
  5. Select Send to WOTC.com from the drop-down.

    This will automatically export the information of any candidate who applies to the job to WOTC.com where a pre-certification questionnaire form will be sent out to the candidate. The information provided in this questionnaire is intended to help your team pre-determine which candidates will be eligible for WOTC credits. 
  6. Scroll down to the Hired Dispositions
  7. Click the Add button next to each Hired Disposition. 
  8. Select Send to WOTC.com from the drop-down.

    This will automatically export the candidate to WOTC.com again with the date they were moved into the Workflow Stage as their Hired Date. 

In order to export the candidate to WOTC.com simply move them through your Workflow as usual. The Workflow Helpers will trigger the candidate exports as you move them into the designated Workflow Stages.
