IRS Form 8850 Instructions

Save

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service Work Opportunity Credit provides employers with an incentive to hire certain individuals in groups targeted by Congress. To qualify for the credit, employers must complete IRS Form 8850, Pre-Screening Notice and Certification Request for the Work Opportunity Credit.

Tips & Warnings

  • If your county is in a rural area that lost population during the 1990s, you may be eligible for further tax incentives to hire within that county. See the instructions for IRS Form 8850 for details.
  • The Work Opportunity Credit is available to employers who hire unemployed veterans discharged in the past five years and disconnected youth, long-term recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, veterans on food stamps, disabled veterans, other food stamps recipients, 16- to 17-year-olds during the summer within designated federal Empowerment Zones or Renewable Communities and ex-felons within a year of release from prison.
