Your business may qualify for the small-business health care tax credit

Employers with fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees may be eligible for a tax credit to partially offset their cost of helping employees pay for health coverage through a Small Business Health Options Program exchange. Newly released rules from the IRS apply to plans for 2017 and later. See if you qualify for a tax credit that could be worth up to 50 percent of the costs you pay for your employees’ premiums.
