In 2010 the federal government created a valuable tax credit for small businesses that offer employees health insurance. But for some reason not everyone that is eligible is taking advantage of it. Here in North Carolina, we’re working to get the word out. We’re sending out emails, distributing brochures, speaking at conferences and events, and we’ve created this website site and blog to promote the credit.
It’s true that not all companies will be eligible, there are well-defined wage and size requirements that might disqualify many. For more about those, visit the How the Credit Works page on this site. Regardless of what you may have heard about this program, if there is significant money on the table you owe it to yourself—and to your business—to try to take advantage of it.
