Published statistics indicate hundreds of thousands of California small employers being eligible for the small business health care tax credit. This is not my experience. Can you comment on this?
There are over half a million small employers in California. A recent report by the Lewin Group and published by The Small Business Majority found that:
It’s worth bearing in mind that many of these small businesses do not currently offer health insurance to their employees. While the tax credit may not be the main reason for an employer to start offering coverage, we believe it’s a strong message for brokers to communicate to their employer prospects along with all the other reasons why employers should start offering coverage.
Lastly, these are statewide statistics. Agents with a client base in relatively affluent, higher-wage areas of the state will experience fewer employers that are eligible for the credit.
