We are excited to announce our newest business venture... listing on ebay! Lynda Grodd has partnered with us to establish ebay and an array of revenue streams to help generate income for our programs. Many of our clients have helped with processing donated items which we convert to merchandise by ironing, measuring, and filling out the intake form.
Opportunity for Tax Credits:
The IRS offers several tax credits for employers who hire employees who are "differently abled."
The Disabled Access Credit is an annual tax credit for making your business accessible to persons with disabilities and can be used for a variety of costs relating to employees and customers with specialized needs.
The Work Opportunity Credit provides a tax credit of up to 40% of the first $6000 for a first year wages of a "differently abled" employee.
Speak with a tax professional to determine how your business could benefit from this and other potential tax credits.
Positive Image in Your Community:
Having diversity in your workforce with hiring "differently abled" employees creates a more positive image for your business. It shows support in the workplace and for customers. Everyone either knows someone or has a loved one who is "differently abled." Hiring "differently abled" helps the community at large.
