Getting an Employer to Hire YOU
Upon your first year out of prison, a felon released from prison gets a $2,400 tax credit incentive for an employer that provides that provides a former inmate with at least 180 days of employment. The rules are simple.
- First, go to the Workforce agency in your county & fill out your paper work.
- Secondly, take the appropriate applications to the place you are seeking employment; the government provides the employer a $2,400 incentive to hire you.
- This lets them know up front that you were once convicted & provides them the incentive to hire you.
If you get the job before you fill out the application at Workforce Oklahoma, your employer will get no tax incentive.
