Form 8941 CPA discusses why so few Companies claim the Small Employer Health Insurance Tax Credit

On May 14th, 2012 the Government Accounting Office published a 52 page report on the Small Employer Health Insurance Tax Credit. As a Form 8941 CPA, I was surprised by their numbers.

  • Only 170,300 companies applied for the credit, down from the estimated 1.4 to 4 million the government expected.
  • Only 28,100 employers claimed the full credit.
  • Most eligible companies don’t offer health insurance so they can’t qualify for the credit.
  • The credit isn’t enough incentive for these companies to begin offering health insurance.
  • Form 8941 and associated calculations were complex enough to prevent some eligible companies to file for the credit.

For specifics on the tax credit click on 8941 from the drop down Forms list in the right sidebar.

I’m a Form 8941 CPA with a virtual office to accommodate clients beyond my Wilmington, NC geographical base. If you’re offering health insurance, don’t let Form 9841 deter you from applying for the Credit. Of course, the Credit is controversial and could disappear. For a free phone consult, please call (910) 399-2705.
