How do small employers find out if they're eligible for the small employer tax credit?

For an employer to qualify for federal small business tax credits, they must:
(1)have fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees;
(2)pay employees an average annual wage of less than $50,000, and
(3)pay at least half of the insurance premiums.

In 2014 the tax credit will increase from a maximum of 35% to a maximum of 50% and will only be available to small employers buying health insurance through the SHOP Marketplace for Small Businesses.

Contact the SHOP Marketplace for Small Businesses at 800-706-7893 for more information. A competent tax advisor also should be able to advise a small employer. There's more information on the Internal Revenue Service website.
