There are more than 570,000 businesses in California that employ 25 workers or fewer. Many of these businesses have struggled to take care of their workers’ health care needs because they have been priced out of the market. Our colleagues at Small Business Majority and Families USA released a report yesterday that describes how the new federal health law helps small employers and their workers obtain quality, affordable health coverage.
Key Findings Include:
More than 4 million small businesses will be eligible to receive a tax credit for the purchase of employee health insurance in 2010.
Approximately 1,198,700 American small businesses will be eligible to receive the maximum tax credit in 2010.
