When your business hires disabled workers, you may qualify for some of the following tax credits and deductions. More detailed information may be found in the IRS publications referenced.

Disabled Access Credit: This is a tax credit for an eligible small business that pays or incurs expenses to provide access to persons with disabilities. The expenses must be to enable the eligible small business to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. (IRS Code Section 44) — See IRS Publication 535 and Form 8826

Barrier Removal Tax Deduction: Businesses may be able to take an annual deduction for expenses related to removing physical, structural, and transportation barriers for people with disabilities. — See IRS Publication 535

Work Opportunity Credit: This credit provides employers with an incentive to hire persons from certain population groups having a particularly high unemployment rate or other special employment needs, such as Vocational Rehabilitation referrals.– See IRS Form 5884, Form 3800, and Form 8850

We would suggest that you first contact Vocational Rehabilitation so your friend can get a full evaluation of their needs. Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) can be reached at (706) 298-7270. If for any reason VR is unable to help, let us know and we will try to find other resources to assist them in finding training and/or employment.
There is no fee to benefit from our training program.  In most instances, individuals will earn a training wage during their participation in New Ventures Inc. work programs.
We hope it’s with us! However, to make sure your child’s needs are fully understood and evaluated, we would first refer you to Vocational Rehabilitation (VR), and they can be reached at (706) 298-7270.
Depending on your needs, our NVI workforce might be the perfect fit for your company. Our workers help many businesses just like yours! Call us today to discuss your needs and how we might be able to help you.
Most of our referrals come through the Georgia Department of Rehabilitation.  First, you apply through DHR and they obtain your medical information, disabilities, etc. In many cases, DHR will refer you to New Ventures, Inc. for Work Evaluation and Work Adjustment programs.  We specialize in creating customized work and classroom programs for each individual.
