This paper provides a description of the small business tax credit and illustrations of the phase-out for qualifying employers' contributions toward their workers' health insurance premiums, based on ?1421 and ?10105(e) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, P.L. 111-148). This credit is available to for-profit and nonprofit employers with fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees with average annual wages of less than $50,000. Under PPACA, certain small employers will be eligible for a tax credit, provided they contribute a uniform percentage of at least 50% toward their employees' health insurance.
