State Tax Credits
K.S.A. 40-2246 allows an income tax credit for some small employers that make qualifying contributions to a small employer health benefit plan or health savings account of an eligible employee. Small employers (defined in K.S.A. 40-2209d) have from 2 and 50 employees. From tax year 2013 on, these credits are only available to corporations subject to the Kansas corporate income tax (C corporations).
- Obtain Kansas Department of Revenue schedule K-57.
- Small businesses may optionally register here and print a copy of their registration. (Note to take the credit, small businesses must file schedule K-57.)
Federal Tax Credits
There are also federal tax credits available through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act passed in 2010. See the Internal Revenue Service website for more information.
