Aetna's Small Business Tax Credit Information

Dec 29, 2010

How you can help your small business clients take advantage of the new tax credit.
Updated information on the tax credit and how Aetna is helping small businesses benefit.
What it is
As you may know, small group employers may qualify for a tax credit that could help them save on health benefits for their employees. Companies with 10 or fewer full-time employees making an average of $25,000 or less will see the biggest cost savings. Be sure to direct your clients to the new and revised information they'll need to apply for the tax credit: Form 8941 and Form 990-T, available at
What it means
Companies that could not previously afford to offer health benefits may now be able to.
Other companies may now be able to maintain the coverage they have.
Or they could now afford to offer employees a more comprehensive plan.
How Aetna can help
Aetna has created the Tax Credit Calculator, an online tool that shows a company's estimated savings.
It's easy to use – just three questions. Try it yourself.
Aetna is committed to keeping you informed and up to date on all legislation that affects health care.
So you can be more helpful to your current and prospective clients.
