IRS Tax Credits and Deductions
To assist businesses with complying with the ADA, Section 44 of the IRS Code allows a tax credit for small businesses and Section 190 of the IRS Code allows a tax deduction for all businesses.
The tax credit is available to businesses that have total revenues of $1,000,000 or less in the previous tax year or 30 or fewer full-time employees.
This credit can cover 50% of the eligible access expenditures in a year up to $10,250 (maximum credit of $5000).
The tax credit can be used to offset the cost of undertaking barrier removal and alterations to improve accessibility; providing accessible formats such as Braille, large print and audio tape; making available a sign language interpreter or a reader for customers or employees, and for purchasing certain adaptive equipment.
The tax deduction is available to all businesses with a maximum deduction of $15,000 per year. The tax deduction can be claimed for expenses incurred in barrier removal and alterations.
To learn more about the tax credit and tax deduction provisions:
If calling the ADA.Gov for validation, be sure to ask the right questions. We will help here…Ask: Are Card Readers and Key-Pads (hardware) required to be in Reach/Range?
If my Pos checkout Card Reader and Key-pad are in a “Fixed (mounted) Position“ on my sales/checkout counter-top, does it have to be fully accessible to all customers?
Does it have to be independently accessible to the person/customer with no assistance by the cashier/server? ( That is unless requested upon…).
Keep in mind (Pin-Entry-Privacy) as well and do envision yourself in a circumstance where you are the one who is in the position of accessibility needs. Think Space and Pull. Not Space and Poll.
