Is your property ready for March 15, 2012?



CLIA has a number of resources to assist you in getting your property ready for the implementation of the ADA requirements due on March 15, 2012:


Tax Incentives
Tax incentives may be available to help absorb costs over several years.  To assist small businesses to comply with the ADA, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Code includes a Disabled Access Credit (Section 44) for businesses with 30 or fewer full-time employees or with total revenues of $1 million or less in the previous tax year. Eligible expenses may include the cost of undertaking barrier removal and alterations to improve accessibility.

Section 190 of the IRS Code provides a tax deduction for businesses of all sizes for costs incurred in removing architectural barriers in existing facilities or alterations. The maximum deduction is $15,000 per year.
