Through Ardmore’s efforts, local businesses discovered that hiring people with disabilities taps into a population of workers who are excited and motivated to work. People with disabilities have a wide-range of strengths and skills that make them well-suited and qualified for a variety of jobs. These individuals enrich our communities and businesses by contributing their very best.
Financial Incentives for Businesses to Hire People with Disabilities
In addition to gaining valuable personnel, businesses that accommodate people with disabilities may qualify for some of the following tax credits and deductions.
- The Small Business Disabled Access Credit provides a non-refundable credit for small businesses that incur expenditures for the purpose of providing access to persons with disabilities.
- The Architectural Barrier Removal Tax Deduction encourages businesses of any size to remove architectural and transportation barriers to the mobility of persons with disabilities.
- The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) provides eligible employers with a tax credit up to 40 percent of the first $6,000 of first-year wages of a new employee if the employee is part of a “targeted group”— employee with a disability are included in that targeted group.
