Episode 16: Michael Markowitz - the Tax Credit Man

  •   Podcast
  •   9/20/2016
  •   Tripp Matthews

Michael Markowitz of TC Services USA joins the podcast in a truly educational episode.  He discusses how his company helps agencies take full advantage of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (referred to commonly as WOTC).  This incentive pays an employer $2400 per new employee hired - as long as the new employee meets certain criteria.  Within the post-acute healthcare industry, Michael figures less than 10% of employers are taking advantage of this credit.  We try to figure out why more companies are not doing this, and he has some good insights as to why.  He also lays out the internal machinations of how the red tape works, and how his company helps take the scissors to that.

This is a very straightforward topic and something can impact you and your organization today.
