The recently enacted Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act could earn you a new tax credit for providing health insurance for your employees.
If your small business or tax-exempt organization pays employee health insurance premiums you may be eligible to claim a credit on your tax return.
Employees with fewer that 25 employees (more if you have part-time employees), and less than $50,000 in average wages, may be eligible.
How Much You Receive
Eligible small employers could qualify for a credit worth up to 35% of premiums paid (for businesses) or 25% of premiums paid (for tax-exempt groups).
