Integration of TaxBreak’s technology with the deverus background screening technology enables streamlined employee tax credit processing

TaxBreak, the leading expert in tax credit processing, and deverus, a market leader in background screening technology, announced today a partnership to offer employee tax credit screening to the deverus platform users. The alliance adds a critical component to deverus’s already robust background screening product and service offering by allowing its clients to quickly screen candidates for tax credit eligibility prior to making a hiring decision.

TaxBreak provides industry leading methods for screening and certifying applicants for such federal and state government incentives as work opportunity tax credits (WOTC) and empowerment or disaster zone credits. Its proprietary software enables companies to easily gather necessary information from the candidate or new hire and then complete the required documentation to submit to state agencies for certification. Today, many organizations employ hourly staff who qualify for these incentives and yet never reap the benefits of their employee selections. These incentives can produce up to $9,000 per qualified new hire in tax credits for the employer.

“TaxBreak is very excited about the opportunities this alliance with deverus presents. The company’s solutions and services are first class and they are a great match for our organization,” said Shannon Scott, President and CEO of TaxBreak. “We believe the integration of TaxBreak’s technology and services into deverus’s product offering will quantifiably impact the end users’ bottom line.”

As a leading provider for software and support services for the background screening industry, deverus will now offer tax credit screening within their SwiftHire product, which allows job applicants to initiate the background screening process by submitting their own information online. deverus’s leverage in the marketplace comes from the ability to solve important business problems for their customers with the right tools and technology. This technological expertise, along with their background industry-specific experience, further differentiates them in the marketplace and helps provide customers with a compelling competitive advantage. deverus continuously expands their technical expertise, translating it into knowledge-based benefits so that they can continue to win competitive battles on the strength of their technology.

“deverus always strives to go beyond screening technology to offer practical ways for our clients to grow their businesses,” said Tom Bisciglia, Director of Client Growth. “TaxBreak’s unique service provides yet another revenue stream for our clients, one that’s easily justified by the tax savings passed on to their end users. It’s a terrific alliance where literally every company involved stands to profit from the service.”

The two companies will work together to ensure a strong partnership is formed to provide maximum benefits to the deverus client base.
