Potential Savings for Camps - Federal Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act
The American Camp Association (ACA) would like to direct your attention to a new tax law, the Federal Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act (Pub. Law 111-147), which could be a benefit to camps this year when hiring staff. Allen McBride, treasurer of The Association of Independent Camps (AIC), has written an article about the HIRE Act. ACA would like to add a few details that we have learned from the American Payroll Association, the IRS, and our legal representative.
In addition to sharing the information in the article from AIC, ACA wants to be sure camps understand that qualifying individuals must meet these requirements:
- The employee has not been employed for more than 40 hours during the 60-day period prior to the day the individual begins work for the qualified employer.
- The employee is not employed by the qualified employer to replace another employee unless the other employee left employment voluntarily or was terminated for cause.
