Deadline for Obtaining Certification for Employees Qualified for Work Opportunity Credit Extended

The IRS has extended the time periods provided originally in Notice 2016-22 (see earlier coverage in Procedures for Obtaining Work Opportunity Credit Certifications for 2015 and Early 2016 Hires Outlined by IRS) to deal with the extension of the Work Opportunity Credit passed by Congress as part of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015.

Now the relief applies to employees hired on or before August 31, 2016 so long as the application is submitted on or before September 28, 2016.
