Did you know that Massachusetts is rewarding small businesses for implementing wellness programs?

This is a photo of Mass Tax Credit

If your business employs 200 or fewer workers and has a wellness program, your business could receive a tax credit of up to $10,000!

The Wellness Tax Credit Incentive gives small businesses in Massachusetts a state tax credit for having an employee wellness program.

 The tax credit is worth 25% of the cost of implementing a workplace wellness program for employees. 

To receive certification of your wellness program:

  1. Check to see that your wellness program qualifies
  2. Certify your wellness program by filling out an online application by December 31, 2015
  3. Apply for the tax credit when filing taxes
