ADA Tax Credit

GlideTrak Qualifies for an ADA Tax Credit of up to 50% of Cost

Americans with Disabilities Act
The Americans with Disabilities Act Tax Credit for Small Businesses

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides a tax credit for expenditures by small businesses that are used “to acquire or modify equipment or devices for individuals with disabilities” (Quoted from IRS Form 8826).

The amount of the credit is 50% of the amount of eligible expenditures for a year that are a minimum of $250. but do not exceed $10,250. So, the maximum tax credit allowable may be (50% of expenditure – $250) .

Keep in mind that this is a tax credit and not just a deduction. A tax credit is subtracted directly from the taxes you owe. In practice, this means that if your small business is eligible for the tax credit, the ADA will pay for half of the total cost.

For this ADA tax credit, an eligible small business is defined as one that either:

1) Had gross receipts for the preceding tax year that did not exceed one million dollars.
2) Had no more than 30 full time employees during the preceding tax year.

If you fit only one of these two categories, we encourage you to fill out IRS Form 8826. and add the deduction to the tax year your GlideTrak was purchased.
