The credit can be as much as 35 percent of the actual cost or the average group premium in the employer's state, whichever is lower. The maximum credit goes to finns with l0 or fewer full-time workers on the payroll and average wages of less than $25,000. Over several years, the credit goes up to 50 percent.
