Thank you Kentucky WOTC for Today’s Update

I received a system-generated update from the Kentucky Work Opportunity Tax Credit Office this morning.  If you have dealings with that office, perhaps you also received it.
It looks like the guidance provided in IRS Notice 2016-22 regarding the new WOTC Target Group (Long Term Unemployment Recipients) might be a little obsolete already.  Here’s the language I received this morning.
Notice the subject line says, “Waiting for IRS Guidance”.  Aren’t we all?

This is a message from Kentucky Work Opportunity Tax Credit office
Information Update:
The U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, Office of Workforce Investment, Division of National Programs, Tools, and Technical Assistance has contacted us regrading WOTC and a meeting with IRS is planned to discuss precisely how the State Workforce Agencies are going to verify eligibility in the new Target Group – Long Term Unemployed  Recipient.  There has been a shift from the guidance IRS already published Notice 216-22 and what IRS seems to require in addition to the Self-Attestation Form.
Updated information on this target group will be provided as soon as we are informed.

Thank you Kentucky!
