Small businesses with either $1,000,000 or less in revenue or 30 or fewer full-time employees may take a tax credit of up to $5,000 annually for the cost of providing reasonable accommodations such as sign language interpreters, readers, materials in alternative format (such as Braille or large print), the purchase of adaptive equipment, the modification of existing equipment, or the removal of architectural barriers.

This tax credit is considerable and amounts to nearly half the purchase price of your table with an overall cap of $5,000 of credit.

Income-Boosting Tips

A series of tips by Shelly K. Schwartz that doctors can use to boost income:

  • In-house pharmacies can add $50,000 or more to your bottom line.
  • Most payers reimburse for online consultations, which can be done after hours or as needed to fill in for a no-show.
  • Average consulting rates range from $3,000 to $7,000 per day, depending on your area of expertise and type of training provided.
  • You can make up to $6,000 a day as an expert witness, but legal work should constitute no more than 5 percent of your income.
  • It often pays to sublet unused space. Just be mindful of Stark rules when it comes to referrals.

Also consider looking into the Axon II Neural Scanner. One test per day on this device can earn your practice an additional $150k per year. For more information, call 877-646-3300 or visit Medical Device Depot.

Welch Allyn Participates in Corporate Responsibility Campaign

Welch Allyn (Skaneateles Falls, NY) recently sent over 400 employee volunteers to over 20 non-profit organizations across central New York as part of its new “A Show of Hands” corporate social responsibility (CSR) campaign. Another 200 employees were stationed at the company’s headquarters assembling international aid, school supply and homeless shelter care kits. The initiative is part of the company’s annual Beacon of Quality event, a designated date when local facilities are closed for the day to honor employees.

In recognition of the company’s 95th anniversary, Welch Allyn chose to forego its traditional employee recognition festivities in favor of giving back to the surrounding communities.
