ADP Introduces Enhancements That Help Companies Capture Work Opportunity Tax Credits
ADP, a leading provider of human capital management services, announced May 14, 2013, the addition of two new capabilities to ADP Tax Credits, including SECURE Document Submission and Voice Signature. These new capabilities provide employers more choices in their efforts to improve the security, efficiency and ease of screening, verification, and document submission required for the federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), accelerating the process to capture credits.
- SECURE Document Submission allows companies to upload WOTC required forms to ADP's dedicated secure online portal to significantly help enhance the security of their WOTC documentation process. Whereas previously employers provided forms and documentation via mail, fax, or e-mail, companies can now upload those forms and supporting documentation directly to ADP's secure, dedicated tax credit online portal.
- Voice Signature allows employees to "sign" forms over the phone, streamlining the WOTC call-in screening and verification process by reducing the need to capture physical signatures on forms and mail, fax, or e-mail documents. This new capability provides additional flexibility for the employer and employee, allowing form completion in a single phone call. Voice Signature adds to the current signature options, which include Internet-based electronic signature, "wet signature" with fax/e-mail forms delivery, or hard copy mailing.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
