ITG FAQ #11 Answer-What effect does the Empowerment Zone Employment Credit have on the Welfare-to-Work or Work Opportunity Credit?

Qualified zone wages do not include any amount you take into account in figuring the Welfare-to-Work or the Work Opportunity Credit. In addition, reduce the $15,000 maximum qualified zone wages for each qualified zone employee by the amount of wages used to figure either of those credits for that employee.
