ADP WOTC Integration

Updated on Follow
0 out of 1 found this helpful

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit, or WOTC ("wot-see") tab contains the integration with ADP to check employee eligibility for tax credits. Tax credits are provided to companies hiring individuals from certain target groups who have consistently faced significant barriers to employment.

When an applicant reaches this step during the application process, it will prompt the applicant for information needed to fill out the 8850 Tax credit form. The integration with ADP will then automatically determine if the employee is eligible for federal tax credits and update the employee record in Avionté. 

See the external website, ADP - Support for Client Administrators, for ADP support.

WOTC Setup (Pre 15.2)

WOTC can be enabled for either the legacy or the onboarding portal if using Avionté versions 14.1 and higher. Setting up WOTC in versions previous to 15.2 (see 15.2 and newer instructions below) requires the editing of system files, but should only be configured by advanced users. Contact the Avionté support team before attempting this install. 

Note: WOTC visibility changes may be made in Admin Menu Settings.
 

The following are the configuration options, their values, and where they should be added for WOTC functionality. They must be manually added as there is no user control in place for them.

Applicants will now see the ADP integration when using the Applicant or Onboarding portal. A Tax Credit Status also appears on the Employee > Detail window.
 
Note: Even if an employee is tax-credit qualified, the employee must be associated with an assignment before a Tax Credit Status is displayed. For version 15.2 or newer, a Tax Credit Status of “Pre Qualified” or “Not Qualified” is displayed immediately after completing the WOTC survey and before the assignment.
 

 

View Forms

Following a qualification, the Tax Credit Status option updates to include a link to view forms. The View Forms option will appear once the employee has filled out the tax credit survey and is deemed to be in a group of employees that could qualify for tax credits, therefore being required to fill out additional paperwork to verify. The “View Forms” link will be available at the first assignment.

Generating the Exports

ADP makes three exports available: ADP New Hire Export, ADP WOTC Location Export, and ADP WOTC Tax Credit File. These exports should be run once per week per each supplier.

Note: The names of the exports should never be changed as they may become unrecognizable to ADP. 

 

ADP New Hire Export (referred to as "Employee file" by ADP)
Date parameters

This export should be run for a 30-day period. It is best practice to set the end date to the current weeks check date, and go back 30 days to get the start date. 

 

In the screen shot below, the End Date is the current week’s check date, 4/7/2017 so the Start Date is 3/7/2017.  Based on the date range selected, the export will pull all employees and their associated new hire information if the employee was paid for the first time during that period.

The Hire Date is the employee’s first assignment start date.

Supplier selection When setting up the feed, a supplier must be selected.
File location When setting up the feed, a file location must be specified to receive the exported file. 

 

 

ADP WOTC Location Export (referred to as "Unit List" by ADP)
Date parameters

Data is pulled based on Accounting Period date, which is always a Sunday. Because this export is to be run weekly, the export should be run for the current Accounting Period. 

 

In the screen shot below, entering 4/2/2017 will pull branch information for branches that had payroll data processed in the 4/2/2017 accounting period. The start date can also be set to 3/27/2017 and end date to 4/2/2017 to generate the same results.
