Disability Employment Act, formerly known as the Qualified Vendor Tax Credit program allows taxpayers to claim a 15% tax credit for expenditures of goods and services purchased from qualified vendors by meeting the following criteria:

  • Employ blind or disabled individuals
  • 30% of its employees classified as disabled
  • Contribute at least 75% of health insurance premiums and pay minimum wage or greater.

The amount of the tax credit for each taxpayer is not to exceed $500,000 per qualified vendor relationship per tax year. The Kansas Department of Commerce will certify the qualified expenditures as eligible for the tax credit through the application process.
