Are you a business that provides Sign Language interpreters to your customers or employees? Be sure to check out available tax credits

Tax Credit
The tax credit, established under Section 44 of the Internal Revenue Code, was created in 1990 specifically to help small businesses cover ADA-related “eligible access expenditures.” A business that for the previous tax year had either revenues of $1,000,000 or less or 30 or fewer full-time workers may take advantage of this credit. The credit can be used to cover a variety of expenditures, including:

  • provision of readers for customers or employees with visual disabilities
  • provision of sign language interpreters
  • purchase of adaptive equipment
  • production of accessible formats of printed materials (i.e., braille, large print, audio tape, computer diskette)
  • removal of architectural barriers in facilities or vehicles (alterations must comply with applicable accessibility standards) fees for consulting services (under certain
    circumstances)
