Health Leaders Media

The Internal Revenue Service has released a draft form for small businesses and tax-exempt organizations to calculate healthcare tax credits in preparation for filing income tax returns next year.

The tax credit was included in the Affordable Care Act signed by President Obama in March and is effective this year. The credit is designed to encourage small employers to offer health insurance coverage for the first time or maintain coverage they already have.
