This week’s question comes from Dan, a small-business owner. I have several employees that I hired who have signed Form W-11. What information do I need to provide to Vision Payroll to qualify for the HIRE Act Credit? Answer: 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. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has released Form W-11, Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act Employee Affidavit that employers must have signed by eligible employees to claim the credit. Once an employer has obtained a signed form from an employee, contact Vision Payroll to inform us that the employee is eligible for the credit. Vision Payroll will work with employers to determine the eligible wages already paid in 2010 and ensure that future wages are not taxed. Contact Vision Payroll if you have further questions on the HIRE Act Credit.
