The IRS extended the 28-day deadline for employers to submit a request to a designated local agency (DLA) to certify that an employee hired between January 1 and October 8, 2021, is a Designated Community Resident or a Qualified Summer Youth Employee. Qualified employees must have a principal place of residence within an Empowerment Zone. Notice 2021-43 authorizes employers to submit Form 8850 (Pre-Screening Notice and Certification Request for the Work Opportunity Credit) for these employees until Nov. 8, 2021. Prior to the transition relief, employers were required to request certification that the individual was a Designated Community Resident or a Qualified Summer Youth Employee by submitting Form 8850 to a DLA within 28 days of that individual beginning work.

Empowerment Zone designations expired on Dec. 31, 2020, but were then extended through 2025 on May 26, 2021. The IRS understands that, because of the expiration of the Empowerment Zones, employers may not have submitted Form 8850 to the DLA within 28 days of the individual beginning work. This filing extension permits employers additional time beyond the 28-day requirement to request certification for individuals in these two targeted groups, because of the lapse in the Empowerment Zone designations.

The IRS also provided guidance in the notice for employers who submitted a Form 8850 to a DLA for these employees prior to the relief and received a denial due to the termination of Empowerment Zone designations.
