I am claiming the premium tax credit of health care premiums for employees. I am eligible to claim 35% of these premiums. How do I claim health care tax credit?
Assuming by your question that you are a small-business owner and you are claiming the premium tax credit available to you which is 35% of the health care premiums you paid out. To claim the maximum credit of 35% of premiums paid you must be a tax-exempt eligible small employer. For all other eligible small employers, the maximum credit is 50% of premiums paid.
You are an eligible small employer if you meet the following criteria:
- You paid premiums for employee health insurance coverage under a qualifying arrangement.
- You had fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees (FTEs) for the tax year.
- You paid average annual wages for the tax year of less than $52,000 per FTE.
If you meet the above criteria you will need to determine your small-business employer health care credit on Form 8941: Credit for Small Employer Health Insurance Premiums.
This form will help you determine the correct figure to include on Form 3800: General Business Credit, Part II.
