Tax Credits for Premium Contributions

According to healthcare.gov, employers with fewer than 25 employees that offer health insurance to their employees may qualify for the Small Business Health Care Tax Credit.

The SHOP Tax Credit Estimator can help determine if your business may qualify, and if it does, how much it could be worth to you.

For more information on SHOP Tax Credits, visit the IRS page titled Small Business Health Care Tax Credit and the SHOP Marketplace.

If there's a tax credit that you want to take advantage of, you may want to consider purchasing on the SHOP exchange.

If you don't qualify for the tax credit, contact an authorized Blue Cross agent to select a health insurance plan.

Are You Eligible?

The IRS offers a number of resources to help businesses determine their tax credit eligibility status.

If you cannot afford to buy insurance for your employees, you can grant them access to coverage and payroll-deduct their premiums as a convenience to them. Call your agent for more information.
