Work Opportunity Tax Credit

Keystone Payroll now offers tax credit services through partners to secure financial benefits for businesses through state and government programs. Please call our office for more information.

Many federal and state employment tax credits are available to businesses, yet millions of dollars go unclaimed every year. Why? Although tax credits can be lucrative for a business, identifying and recouping them is a complex process. Don’t let the complexity of tax credit programs hinder you from pursuing them. They are a low-hanging fruit that can help increase your bottom line. 

The best way for you to pursue tax credits is to partner with an experienced firm that has a proven track record for claiming millions of dollars in tax credits for businesses in a wide variety of industries. In one year alone, HKP generated over $12 million in tax credits for clients. HKP has vast experience with businesses and we look forward to bringing more dollars to your company’s bottom line. With enhancements to the e-file process, combined with HKP’s online forms, the submission is more streamlined than ever before. 

HKP has an established tax credit department with dedicated full-time staff to research, apply and recoup your tax credits. Our experienced, accessible people will provide all the help you’ll need, whether it’s quickly answering a question, untangling “government speak” or simply talking to you about our tax credit program. To ensure we are taking advantage of all the possible incentives for businesses on both federal and state levels, our in-house tax department provides continual, thorough tax credit research. 

Here is a snapshot of current employment tax credits HKP aggressively pursues for clients:
