Tax Credit Helps Small Employers Lower Some Health Care Coverage Costs

Did you know that a relatively new small business health care tax credit can help you save money on employee health insurance costs for some workers? Among other steps, to qualify you must:

- Pay at least half the premium cost for each employee. 
- Have fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees with average wages of less than $50,000 a year.
The credit may be up to 35% of premiums for small businesses and 25% of premiums for taxexempt organizations for costs paid in 2010 through 2013. Those numbers will rise to 50% and 35%, respectively, in 2014. And if you don’t owe tax this year, you can carry the credit back or forward to use in other years.
