Employer Tax Credit Screening

We offer flexible and responsive tax credit screening programs that will help reduce your operating costs and minimize your overall tax liability.

What is Tax Credit Screening?

Tax credit screenings are used to determine if job applicants are eligible for state and federal tax incentives. Candidates may be eligible for various tax credits for which employers would receive up to $9,600 for each qualifying hire. Eligibility is based on things like past military service, or current participation in government assistance programs. 

We monitor thousands of employment tax credits and economic incentive programs throughout the United States to identify valuable tax savings and tax credits opportunities.
