Agents and Power of Attorney (POA)
An employer may use an intermediary, e.g., an employer representative/consultant/agent, for all or some WOTC program activities. The Power of Attorney establishes the relationship between the agent and the employer. The IRS recognizes properly designated employer representatives.
An original POA, or a notarized copy of a duly authorized POA, must be files with the Ohio WOTC unit using either the IRS Form 2848 or other duly authorized Power of Attorney document.
Ohio does not conduct any WOTC business with employer agents who do not have a valid Power of Attorney.
Please ensure requests for new employers are not submitted until a POA is on file with us.
