Businesses, agencies, and organizations that provide public services are required, under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to provide information in an alternate format if a person with a visual or reading impairment requests it or a sign language interpreter if a person with a hearing or speech impairment requests one.
Many groups do not know how to find those resources. The Kansas Commission on Disability Concerns (KCDC) has compiled a list of organizations that provide some of these services. See the listing on the left of this page for resources.
Some of these services may qualify as a tax credit for business. However the law was changed in the legislature in 2011 and the last year for the Kansas tax credit will be 2012. Check out the Tax Credit Brochure
. KCDC always recommends businesses consult with their tax professional or lawyer when considering the use of tax incentives.
