The “Military Spouse Hiring Act,” was introduced in the U.S. Senate and is currently under review. The proposed legislation is mirrored by a bill in the U.S. House. The bill seeks to expand the Work Opportunity Tax Credit to include qualified military spouses as a targeted group that qualifies for the credit. A “qualified military spouse” is defined as any individual who is certified by the designated local agency as being a spouse of a member of the armed forces as of the hiring date. Stay tuned to see if this bill passes and becomes law.
