Attention: Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) Unit

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New Hampshire Right to Know Law, I hereby request the following records:

1) All reports regarding Work Opportunity Tax Credits certified in 2019 and 2020 provided to the US Department of Labor, including forms 9058.
2) Any database tracking Work Opportunity Tax Credit certifications which is created or maintained by your department or by any third party vendor under contract with your department, preferably in .csv or .xlsx format. If it is easier, the database can be limited to the calendar or fiscal years ending in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
3) The most recent of any contracts with third party vendors to track WOTC certifications.

My goal is to ascertain which businesses and industries are applying for and/or receiving Work Opportunity Tax Credits, for which categories of employees and which occupations. If a conversation could help narrow or expedite the completion of this request, I am available at 802 233 4992 and emily_corwin@harvard.edu.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Hi Jenna,

In order to expedite things, I wanted to let you know that I have had much success with other states amending item #2 to the following fields from your WOTC database, and limiting those fields to years 2018 to 2020. Each row represents 1 employee. I'll attach an example of a responsive record from another state in case it is helpful. I'm more than happy to chat at the number below.

Business name | Employee Target group | Job position | Starting Wages | Date of some kind | Approve/deny status

Many thanks,
Emily Corwin
