Want to earn up to $5,000 in business tax credits this year?

If you answered no, please skip this article. But if you said yes, because who wouldn’t say yes to tax credits, we’ve got some news for you. Your business can receive an annual tax credit of up to $5,000 for making your website accessible and compliant with the ADA.

According to section 44 of the IRS code, this tax credit allows businesses to earn back part of their overall expenditure they put into web accessibility and ADA compliance during the previous tax year.

If your business has under 30 full-time employees or generated less than $1 million in the previous tax year, you are eligible for this credit. You’ll need to fill out form 8826, which can be found on the IRS website, and attach it to your yearly tax return.

Now what exactly qualifies as accessibility expenditures?

  1. Web Accessibility Solutions installed on your website
  2. Native accessibility implementations by your web developer
  3. Ongoing remediation of files and media on your website
  4. Other paid-for accessibility services

If you’re looking to do the right thing for your business, attract a new customer base, and earn some money back, there’s no better time than now to invest in accessibility for your web presence. It is the easiest way to stand out and position yourself for audiences that may avoid competitors because their websites cannot be accessed by different groups of people.
