One thing business owners may not know is that the U.S. government encourages businesses to become accessible and compliant so that it provides tax credits in return.

This article provides information about the ADA tax credit, who is eligible for it, what the benefits are, and how to apply. As tax credit is a significant benefit with financial value to business owners, here is some information that can help you:

 

What is the ADA Tax Credit

The U.S. government promotes and supports accessibility practices that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by incentivizing the efforts made and sustained with a tax credit (a credit is an amount subtracted from your overall liability after calculating your taxes). You can receive up to $5,000 a year in tax credits and reduce your overall prices on accessiBe’s products and services.

The tax credit, listed under Section 44 of the IRS Code, covers 50% of the eligible access expenditures made during the previous tax year, with a maximum expenditure limit of $10,250. There is no credit for the first $250 of the expenditures, so it is subtracted accordingly. Therefore, the highest amount of credit a business can receive is $5,000.

For example, if your spend $490 on accessWidget, after removing $250 (as there is no credit for the first $250 of the expenditures), you are eligible for a 50% credit for the remaining $240. Hence, you can receive $120 in tax credits, which means you would only pay $370 a year for accessWidget.

 

What businesses are eligible for ADA Tax Credit?

The ADA tax credit benefit is available to businesses that meet one of the following conditions:

  1. The business generated $1,000,000 or less during the year before filing
  2. The business employs 30 or fewer full-time employees.

 

How to apply for ADA Tax Credits

Once you have confirmed that your client’s business is eligible, they can fill out Form 8826 to apply. It must then be attached to their yearly tax return and sent alongside it. You can find Form 8826 on the IRS government website, where you can also research the rules and stipulations regarding the tax credit itself.

More instructions can also be found on page 2 of Form 8826. You can also read more on the IRS Tax Credits and Deductions page on the Americans with Disabilities Act website.

 

Who is eligible to apply?

  1. Any business that generated $1,000,000 or less during the year before filing.
  2. Any business that employs 30 or fewer full-time employees in the previous tax year.
