Will small business employers that currently provide health insurance be able to get tax credits?
Yes, if the small business meets the eligibility requirements. See http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-utl/3_simple_steps.pdf
For tax years 2010 through 2013, there is a sliding-scale credit of up to 35% of the employer’s eligible premium expenses. For tax-exempt employers, the maximum amount of tax credit is 25% of eligible premium expenses. Beginning in 2014, the maximum amount of tax credit increases to 50% of premium expenses as long as coverage is purchased from Covered California. For tax-exempt employers, the maximum amount of tax credits increases to 35% in 2014.
