On June 30, 2014, the Internal Revenue Service issued final regulations relating to the small business tax credit (“SBTC”). As background, small businesses and tax-exempt employers that provide health care coverage to their employees under a qualified health care arrangement are entitled to a tax credit.
The final regulations adopt most of the subject matter addressed in the proposed regulations and prior issued guidance issued in September 2013. Primarily, the final regulations address changes to the SBTC applicable in 2014 and beyond. HRB 98 provides the highlights of those changes, including:
• Eligible Employers
• Qualifying Coverage
• Amount of Credit
• Uniform Contribution Requirement
• Claiming the Credit
