It is a win-win situation for your business when you hire employees with disabilities. You hire dependable and dedicated individuals and also save money through several attractive financial benefits.
Work Opportunity Tax Credit
An employer is eligible for this credit for hiring individuals from any disability category; up to $2,400 for the first year of employment. This is a one-time incentive per individual hired.
Barrier Removal Tax Credit
This is an annual credit available for each year that an employer removes a physical, structural or transportation barrier (must own the facility or vehicle); up to $15,000 per tax year.
Disabled Access Tax Credit
Similar to the Barrier Removal Tax Credit, this credit also incorporates removal of communication barriers (interpreters, reader, taped text, JAWS, or other visual adaptive technology) to acquire or modify equipment and is up to $5,000. Additionally, there is a separate incentive for small business that is up to $10,500.
