Job & Family Services Work Opportunity Tax Credit
Employers, 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 (POA) establishes the relationship between the agent and the employer. The IRS recognizes properly designated employer representatives.

An original or a notarized copy of a duly authorized POA, must be filed with the Ohio WOTC unit using either the IRS Form 2848 or other duly authorized Power of Attorney document.

Please ensure applications are submitted timely. Ohio will accept applications without a valid Power of Attorney but certifications will be held until a valid POA is on file.
