The Affordable Care Act (ACA) created several tax and non-tax provisions for health care coverage and financial assistance options, including the Premium Tax Credit and the Individual Shared Responsibility Provision for individuals and families. Employer provisions include the Small Business Health Care Tax Credit and the Employer Shared Responsibility Provision. The IRS administers the tax provisions of the law, while Health and Human Services (HHS) is the lead agency for the non-tax provisions.

Employers can also visit the Small Business Health Care Tax Credit Estimator tool for help determining eligibility for the Small Business Health Care Tax Credit, which is designed to encourage small businesses to offer health insurance coverage for the first time or maintain coverage they already have.
