Efficient Forms, LLC announces the immediate release of its EHX WOTC Screening tools to assist all companies wanting to claim 2012 WOTC ahead of the April 29th deadline.

Littleton, CO (PRWEB) March 31, 2013

In an effort to assist companies and Human Resource Service Providers with meeting the IRS deadline of April 29, 2013 for submitting 2012 WOTC paperwork to appropriate state agencies, Efficient Forms is making its automated WOTC Screening and WOTC forms automation service available to all companies and waiving the screening fee when they process their credits through Efficient Forms.

Earlier in March, IRS Notice 2013-14 gave guidance regarding transition relief for employers claiming the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) that was retroactively extended from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2013. Specifically, this notice provided employers that hire(d) members of targeted groups additional time beyond the 28-day deadline for submitting Form 8850, the Pre-screening Notice and Certification, to the appropriate state DLA.

The IRS notice includes the following: a taxable employer that hires a member of a WOTC targeted group on or after January 1, 2012, and on or before March 31, 2013, will be considered to have satisfied the requirements if it submits the completed Form 8850 to the DLA to request certification not later than April 29, 2013.

The release of EHX WOTC Screening allows companies to quickly determine if the employees they hired in 2012 are WOTC eligible, completes all the required WOTC paperwork (8850 and 9061), and captures electronic signatures from the employee and company HR administrators. Efficient Forms will also assist companies with processing the credits utilizing EHX WOTC Processing services. Efficient Forms is also releasing the WOTC Screening tools to Payroll Providers and PEO groups to assist them with identifying 2012 WOTC credits for their customers’ companies.

Many companies have not taken advantage of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit due to the complexity of the forms and certification process. Our EHX WOTC Screening service removes those barriers. Our easy to follow, plain English, interactive Question and Answer process makes it easy to complete the required WOTC forms (8850 and 9061). With the April 29th deadline to submit WOTC forms looming, we felt it was necessary and important to offer our tools to assist companies with this daunting task. David Kenney, CEO, Efficient Forms, LLC

EHX WOTC Screening can be setup in a matter of minutes for a company, payroll provider or PEO. Efficient WOTC Screening is simplifying a complex process in time for companies to meet the April 29th submission deadline.

Do rank ‘n’ file Democrats understand the difference between consumer spending and government spending?

Question by El Tecolote: Do rank ‘n’ file Democrats understand the difference between consumer spending and government spending?
Consumer spending stimulates the economy. Government spending requires more and more tax money from the consumer, which leads to less consumer spending. While Democrats are telling us that leading economists say spending stimulates the economy, I have to wonder if they honestly believe they read the reports correctly.

Best answer:

Answer by Reality has a Liberal bias
Why do conservatives keep pushing for tax cuts when they’re less effective than government spending?

“The multipliers showed that increased government spending would have more of a multiplier effect than tax cuts. ”

“In congressional testimony given in July 2008, Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s Economy.com, provided estimates of the one year multiplier effect for several fiscal policy options. The multipliers showed that increased government spending would have more of a multiplier effect than tax cuts. The most effective policy, a temporary increase in food stamps, had an estimated multiplier of 1.73. Making the Bush tax cuts permanent, had the second lowest multiplier, 0.23. A payroll tax holiday had the largest multiplier for tax cuts, 1.29. Refundable lump-sum tax rebates, the policy used in the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008, had the second largest multiplier for a tax cut, 1.26.[2]”
