Required Employee Benefits

The Small Business Administration has an article titled Required Employee Benefits. It reviews the mandated benefits of social security, unemployment insurance, and workers’ compensation. It then discusses optional benefits, such as health benefit plans, retirement plans, leave, flexible compensation, and perquisites such as parking, bonuses, and tuition reimbursement.

Small Business Healthcare Tax Credit

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) offers some tax-exempt organizations and small businesses that provide health insurance coverage to their employees a special tax credit (if they qualify), due to the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in March 2010. The Small Business Health Care Tax Credit is one of the first reform provisions of the new law. When filing tax returns, certain eligible tax-exempt organizations and small businesses can apply for a tax credit to cover a portion of their employee health insurance coverage costs.
