Question of the Week: When Will the HIRE Act Affidavit Form Be Available?
Filed under: News
Vision Payroll

This week’s question comes from Andrew, a company president. We know that we can receive a payroll tax exemption and income tax credit under the HIRE Act if we hire certain unemployed workers. We need qualified employees to sign an affidavit to prove they are eligible. When will the HIRE Act affidavit form be available? Answer: The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has released a draft Form W-11, Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act Employee Affidavit. Under the HIRE Act, employers may avoid paying social security tax on qualified employees and receive an income tax credit for retaining those employees. Employers are required to obtain a signed affidavit from qualified employees. A final Form W-11 is expected to be released by the IRS during the week of April 4, 2010. Contact Vision Payroll with further questions on the HIRE Act.
