Is your small business eligible for a health care tax credit?
Certain small businesses that offer health benefits are now eligible for health care tax credits. These vary depending on the tax-exempt status of the organization and employer contribution toward health benefits.
The Small Business Health Care Tax Credit is designed to encourage small businesses and small tax-exempt organizations to offer health insurance coverage for their employees. The credit is targeted specifically to help businesses and organizations that employ moderate- and low-income workers.
If you currently provide health insurance coverage for your employees, you may qualify for the tax credit.
UnitedHealthcare developed a Small Business Health Care Modeling Tool to assist employers and brokers in determining eligibility for the credit and estimating the potential credit amount. If the employer meets eligibility requirements, the modeling tool uses the state-specific average premium amount to calculate the estimated credit amount.
