CalChamber Urges Small Business to Investigate Health Care Tax Credit for Small Employers
â??(Source: www.CalChamber.com) The California Chamber of Commerce is urging small businesses to review IRS guidelines to determine eligibility for the small business health care tax credit. The tax credit is part of the 2010 Affordable Care Act.
The small business health care tax credit helps small businesses and small tax-exempt organizations afford the cost of covering their employees. According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), small employers that pay at least half of the premium for employee health insurance coverage may be eligible for the small business health care tax credit. Small tax-exempt organizations also may qualify.
The IRS reports that since April 2010, it has sent millions of postcards to small employers to let them know about the new small business health care tax credit and encourage them to check their eligibility. Even a business that didn't receive a postcard still may be eligible. Read More.
