We urge you to please take a few minutes to call the Governor’s office and
urge his support for a Small Business Tax Credit for hiring individuals
with disabilities. Thanks to our colleagues at the NY Association of
Independent Living for taking the lead on this legislation that impacts the
entire disabilities community.
Urge Governor Cuomo to Enact the Small Business Tax Credit! The bill
(A.1369/S.3688) to create a tax credit for small businesses who hire people
with disabilities was delivered to the Governor on Monda
Urge Governor Cuomo to Enact the Small Business Tax Credit!
The bill (A.1369/S.3688) to create a tax credit for small businesses who
hire people with disabilities was delivered to the Governor on Monday. He
now has 10 days to take action on the bill. Call the Governor today to urge
him to enact the small business tax credit!
This type of incentive, geared to small businesses, could go a long way to
helping people with disabilities find gainful employment in NYS, and
addressing the devastating rates of unemployment and poverty in our
community. The NYS Employment First Commission’s report included a
recommendation to establish a cross-disability tax credit, which this is in
keeping. While other tax credits exist, this particular opportunity is
needed for the following reasons: 1) Workers with Disabilities Tax Credit
(WETC) is good for two years and only if you are a consumer of the
vocational rehabilitation system seeking entry into the job market, 2)
other tax credits are focused on individuals with particular disabilities
identifying the need for a cross-disability application, and 3) small
businesses are major employers in this state.
ACTION! Call Governor Cuomo TODAY at #518-474-8390. Press 2 to speak with
Say: I am calling to urge Governor Cuomo to sign the small business
tax credit bill! The tax credit created by A.1369/S.3688 would create an
incentive for small businesses to hire individuals with disabilities,
increasing the opportunities for New Yorkers with disabilities to achieve
gainful employment and self-sufficiency.
