The first step is prescreening to determine eligibility. The jobseeker or the employer must complete the Individual Characteristics Form, Work Opportunity Tax Credit and WelfaretoWork Tax Credit, ETA 9061.
The employer and the jobseeker must complete the PreScreening Notice and Certification Request for the Work Opportunity and WelfaretoWork Credits, Form 8850.
The employer and the jobseeker must sign the Form 8850, under penalty of perjury, attesting that the jobseeker is a member of a target group.
The employer then sends the Form 8850 and the ETA 9061 to the EDD, requesting certification for the WOTC. The Form 8850 must be postmarked no later than the 21st day after the jobseeker begins work.
Mail the Form 8850 with the ETA 9061 attached to:
P. O. Box 1408
Roseville, CA 956788408
The above referenced forms can be downloaded from the EDD WOTC Website.
