Tax incentives for hiring individuals with disabilities 

Did you know that, in addition to giving you access to an untapped workforce, hiring individuals with disabilities may qualify your business for certain tax credits?

Businesses, both large and small, may be eligible for tax credits by hiring individuals with disabilities.


A few examples of tax credits your business can earn include the following:


Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC)

A federal tax credit available to employers for hiring individuals from certain target groups who have consistently faced significant barriers to employment. Learn more about the WOTC: https://www.doleta.gov/business/incentives/opptax/



Disabled Access Tax Incentives

Small businesses are eligible for two tax incentives to help cover the cost of providing reasonable accommodations for employees or customers with disabilities. Learn more about the Disabled Access Tax Incentives: https://askjan.org/topics/taxinc.cfm
