“Wheelchair ramps and grab bars are among the home modifications that older adults may need to stay where they live. Several states have considered bills that would give tax credits to residents who make their homes more accessible.” (Bergal, 2016, para. 1)
This article by HuffPost News discusses how states are addressing the issue that many older adults have. They need to modify their home in order to continue living there, but accessibility modifications can be very expensive. Often, these houses have been family homes full of memories and sentimental value.
These tax credits, approved by Virginia and at least three US counties, would be given for home modifications such as installing grab bars, wheelchair ramps.
Even if you do not have the opportunity to receive tax credits, Next Day Access provides easy and affordable options to improve home accessibility and even offers financing options to help with the cost. We offer both wheelchair ramps and grab bars, as well as several other products.
