AGC Calls on Congress to Provide Health Insurance Tax Relief for 2018

This week, AGC and a coalition of organizations representing small businesses called on Congress to pass HIT relief for 2018 before January. The Health Insurance Tax (HIT) is one of the largest taxes imposed by the Affordable Care Act on the fully-insured health care market – the market that serves most small business. The tax was suspended for 2017; however, absent congressional action, the HIT is projected to return in 2018 at a rate of over $14 billion, which will ultimately be paid for by small businesses in the form of increased health care premiums.
