Tips for taxpayers with disabilities

DBTAC Rocky Mountain ADA Center Educates Taxpayers on Tax Credits and Benefits for People with Disabilities

With tax day just around the corner, now is the time for taxpayers with disabilities and taxpayers with children or spouses with disabilities to determine which Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax credits and benefits they are eligible for.

“There are 54 million Americans with disabilities, so these tax credits and benefits apply to about 20 percent of our population,” said Jana Burke, the director of the DBTAC Rocky Mountain ADA Center which provides information, training and informal guidance to individuals and organizations with rights and responsibilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). “The IRS provides people with disabilities and people with children or spouses with disabilities with a variety of tax credits and benefits, but too often taxpayers aren’t familiar with the tax credits they are eligible for and miss out on this federal assistance.”
