Calling All Small Business Owners!

Are you a small business owner that has taken advantage of the small business healthcare tax credit? If so, would you be willing to share your story? Based on preliminary research, we’re afraid there are literally thousands of small businesses in North Carolina that could be taking advantage of this credit but aren’t. We want to change that. Heck, the federal government wants to change that.

I don’t think anyone “loves” paying taxes. It’s something we all must do, but we certainly don’t have to overpay. This credit has the potential to save small businesses across our great state hundreds of thousands of dollars. Maybe millions of dollars. That’s money that could be reinvested in the business, or used to hire staff.

If you’ve have success with this credit, please help us spread the word about it!

Send Us a Note!

We will get in touch with you as soon as possible. Thanks so much!


Hey Folks…This Credit is for You!!

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.
