The government is going to give you up to $5,000 to get a brand-new website. It’s true. Let’s find out how right now.
IRS code title 26 section 44 states that any business with 30 or fewer employees is eligible for up to a $5,000 tax credit for ADA improvement to their business. Because it’s expected that websites are ADA Compliant, where they’re accessible to people with visual and auditory impairments, this credit applies as a result of that. The way the credit works is for businesses with 30 or few employees or 1 million dollars or less in annual revenue, they are eligible for a 50% tax credit after the first $250 up to $5,000. This means if you have a website that’s going to cost $10,250 your net cost after the tax credit is only $5,250.
This tax credit will work on a new website that’s ADA Compliant or an ADA remediation of your existing website. Therefore, if you have a website that you love that you simply want to make ADA Compliant you can get that tax credit as well. So, whether you want a brand-new ADA Compliant website or remediate your existing website to be ADA Compliant this tax credit reduces your cost substantially.
