Affordable Care Act Tax Provisions for Small Employers

Español | 中文 | 한국어 | TiếngViệt | Pусский

Some of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, or health care law, apply only to small employers, generally those with fewer than 50 full-time employees or equivalents.

If you have fewer than 50 employees, but are a member of an ownership group with 50 or more full-time equivalent employees, you are subject to the rules for large employers.
