Good news for small employers
who use SHOP
If you’re a small employer with fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees, we have good news.
Did you know you may qualify for a tax credit worth up to 50% of your premium costs when you buy health insurance through the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP)? Non-profit employers may qualify for a tax credit worth as much as 35% of premium costs.
Here’s how the tax credit works. If you had 10 employees making $25,000 each and your contribution to employee premiums was $70,000, your tax credit amount would be $35,000— 50% of your contribution. For non-profit employers, the tax credit amount would be $24,500—35% of your contribution.
This means you get health insurance for your workers, and keep more of your cash in your business.
