As a business owner, you know how important it is to make your website accessible to everyone. However, did you know that investing in accessibility improvements can save you money through the ADA tax credit?

The ADA Tax Credit – A Potential Cost-Saving Opportunity

The ADA tax credit is a federal tax credit that rewards businesses for making their services and facilities accessible to people with disabilities. It covers 50% of eligible access expenditures made during the previous tax year, with a maximum expenditure limit of $10,250. However, there is no credit for the first $250 of expenditures, so this amount is subtracted accordingly. The most credit a business can receive is $5,000.

But what types of accessibility expenditures are eligible for the tax credit? These include:

  • Web accessibility solutions or tools that optimize websites
  • The purchase of adaptive equipment
  • The production of accessible formatting on printed materials (braille, large print, audiotape, computer diskette)
  • Fees for accessibility consulting

The Benefits of Investing in Website Accessibility

Investing in accessibility not only benefits your business by making your website more inclusive, but it can also save you money through the ADA tax credit. By partnering with Comit Developers for accessibility improvement services, you can take advantage of potential tax savings while also improving your website’s user experience for everyone.

Who Qualifies for the ADA Tax Credit?

To be eligible for the ADA tax credit, businesses must meet specific criteria. The good news is that the benefit is available to many small businesses. Here are the key eligibility requirements:

  • Revenue limit: The ADA tax credit benefit is available to businesses that generated $1,000,000 or less during the year before filing.
  • Employee limit: The benefit is also available to businesses that employ 30 or fewer full-time employees.
  • Eligible expenditures: Finally, the business must have incurred eligible access expenditures during the tax year, such as those related to web accessibility solutions, adaptive equipment, or consulting services.

By meeting these criteria, businesses can potentially receive a tax credit of up to $5,000 for making accessibility improvements.
