Tax Credits

Small Businesses can qualify for tax credits of up to 50% of the employer cost of premiums.

To be eligible, your business must:
  • Have fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees (FTEs), who have average wages of $50,000 or less per year.
  • Cover at least 50% of the cost of single (not family) health care coverage for each of your employees.
  • Purchase insurance through the Small Business Marketplace to be eligible for the credit for tax years 2017 and beyond. If your business did not owe tax during the year, the credit can be carried forward or applied back to other tax years.

If your business is tax-exempt, the credit is refundable. You may be eligible to receive the credit as a refund, if it does not exceed your income tax withholding and Medicare tax liability.
