Are there tax benefits that accompany buying group health insurance?
Employers who offer group health insurance are frequently eligible for considerable tax advantages. As a business owner, you can deduct 100% of the premiums you pay annually on qualifying group health plans. Another benefit is the deduction of payroll taxes as a direct result of offering group health insurance as part of a total compensation package. Additionally, your employees will have the opportunity to pay their portion of the monthly premium with no tax penalty. You will want to check with your accountant or tax advisor to confirm the specific tax benefits that are available for your area and business.
