Potential Tax Savings for Eligible Small Business - IRS Tax Code Section 44
The amount of the disabled access credit is 50 percent of the amount of eligible access expenditures for a year that exceed $250 but do not exceed $10,250.
An eligible small business is defined as any business or person who elects to claim the disabled access credit and either (1) had gross receipts for the preceding tax year that did not exceed $1 million or (2) had no more than 30 full-time employees during the preceding tax year.
Amounts described under (1), above, that are paid or incurred for new construction first placed in service after November 5, 1990, do not qualify for the credit. (3), (4) and (5) may qualify for the credit.
Please consult your tax advisor for specific details and to determine if your business is eligible for this tax credit.
