Health Care Tax Credit Eligibility for Small Employers
With April 15 approaching, it’s a good time to remind your small employer clients who haven’t yet filed their taxes that they might be eligible for a health care tax credit.
To qualify for this tax credit, a group must:
- Have fewer than 25 full-time employees,
- Pay average wages of less than $50,000 a year per full-time equivalent employee, and
- Pay at least half of employee health insurance premiums.
The resulting amount can be added to the general business credit on the employer’s tax return.
