Serving Employers Who Are Committed to the Career Success of Our Nation’s Warriors
Military members are trained to be leaders from the day they enter service. In a variety of high-pressure situations, they were required to make decisions fast and for the benefit of their mission.
Laziness doesn’t cut it in the military, so those returning to the civilian workforce won’t think twice about working the extra effort to get the job done. Veterans are also accustomed to working long and unconventional hours — perfect for companies that regularly deal with last-minute deadlines and quick turnaround projects.
Many veterans have free access to special training or education courses which enhance their value. This additional education means employers can obtain highly knowledgeable employees without paying for training.
Perhaps the biggest financial perk of hiring a veteran — aside from the profit their efficiency will bring — is the tax credit provided to employers. Companies that hire short- or long-term unemployed veterans may receive a Returning Heroes Tax Credit, while those that employ veterans with service-related disabilities may receive a Wounded Warriors Tax Credit. Both credits can dramatically reduce the taxes paid on salaries, saving employers significant costs per hire.

VETS - Beyond The Uniform has partnered with Veterans Tax Credits (VTC) to help ensure employers are receiving all of the benefits for hiring veterans.
VTC’s mission is to help both Veterans and employers leverage the Department of Labor’s Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) program. The program allows employers to benefit by selecting candidates from target groups, such as Veterans, disabled Veterans and other non-Veteran groups. Employers can earn up to $9600 per Veteran hired.
VTC partners with both the Veteran and employer to connect, educate and create a successful outcome for all. On the Veteran side, we help Veterans get pre-certificated for the Veteran Tax Credit to allow them to leverage the program to help market themselves to employers. On the employer side, we provide a turn-key software platform solution to ensure employers are maximizing the tax credits for hiring Veterans and all other target groups.
In addition to the tax credit processing, VTC provides a way to source pre-certified Veterans.
Over $1 billion in tax credits are dispersed each year by the WOTC program, yet approximately $64 billion go unclaimed.
