Employers that hire individuals with disabilities may take advantage of tax incentives to help subsidize wages of new employees and to cover the cost of making the business accessible for both employees and customers.

Tax credits are available for wages paid to new employees who meet certain criteria, and for architectural adaptations, equipment acquisitions, and services such as sign language interpreters.

Tax deductions are available to businesses for architectural or transportation adaptations to accommodate both customers and employees with disabilities.

Note: A tax credit is subtracted from your tax liability after you calculate your taxes, while a tax deduction is subtracted from your total income before taxes, to establish your taxable income.
