WOTC Extension Must Wait Until 2012


It’s been all over the news. The U. S. House and Senate agreed to pass a 2-month extension of the 2011 payroll tax reduction. Unfortunately, the tax extenders including WOTC, Research and Development and other important tax incentive programs were not included in this hotly contested legislation.
It is clear, however, that the White House and Senate leadership continue to support tax extenders, which are one of the Senate’s top priorities.
With the agreement to pass the 2-month extension of the payroll tax reduction, Senate and House leaders have also agreed to appoint conferees to hammer out a full 12-month extension. It is in this process that we have our next opportunity to see tax extenders, including WOTC, gain traction for 2012 renewals.
Paul Suplizio, President of the WOTC Coalition, has set the Coalition on course to begin a new campaign on January 2, 2012. The objective, of course, is to persuade House and Senate conference members to include the full-WOTC extension and other tax extenders in the final payroll bill.
Stay tuned . . . it won’t be long.
