IRS To Provide $5,000 Tax Credit to Small Businesses for Accessible Websites
Small Businesses can now qualify for a tax credit of up to $5000 for making their websites accessible to persons with diabilities. This new credit is defined in IRS Code Section 44, or the Disabled Access Credit.
When a website is designed and developed with accessibility in mind, it allows all individuals, including those with visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, neurological and other disabilities, the power to access the site with assistive technology,” says Mark Shapiro, President of the Bureau of Internet Accessibility. “We have a long and successful history of providing our clients from a wide array of industries with the assessments and remediation assistance they need to make their web presence accessible to all end users.
