Frequently Asked Questions
I am a disabled veteran from the Vietnam era and unemployed. I am trying to determine if I would qualify for the tax credit if I am hired by another company. I have been unemployed since 11/2012.
I’m sorry to hear that you are unemployed. So many of our veterans are right now. But the tax credit you are referring to would go to the hiring employer, not to you as the employee. It is the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, and it could be something you could mention to a potential employer during a job interview.
