SMALL BUSINESS HEALTHCARE TAX CREDIT
If you have <50 employees, the ACA does not require that you provide health insurance, but it does offer tax credits of up to 35% for eligible small businesses that choose to provide insurance to their employees for the first time or maintain the coverage they already have. To qualify businesses must –
- Fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees
- Pay average annual wages below $50,000,
- Contribute 50% or more toward your employees’ self-only health insurance premiums.
In 2014, this tax credit goes up to 50% and is available to qualified small businesses that purchase coverage in the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace.
