Do You Qualify For An Obamacare Tax Credit? 7.9.2013 Inc
If you do, and you're not bothering to claim it, you could be leaving lots of cash on the table Although businesses with 50 or more employees won’t have to comply with the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate until 2015, smaller firms that choose to offer health benefits can begin reaping the benefits of an enhanced tax credit starting next year. The hard part: figuring if your company qualifies for the credit. Since 2010, certain businesses--those with 25 or fewer full-time equivalent employees; that pay average annual wages below $50,000, and that pay at least half of the premiums for single health insurance coverage for their employees--have been eligible for a tax credit of up to 35 percent of employer-paid premiums. Starting in 2014, the credit will rise to 50 percent; qualifying businesses will be able to claim the credit for up to two consecutive years. Under original ACA rules, employers only could claim the credit if they had purchased coverage through a state-run ...

San Francisco to Entrepreneurs: Solve Our City's Problems 6.9.2013 Inc
The city launches a new entrepreneur-in-residence program. The hope? Get San Francisco's brightest to work on the city's gnarliest problems. San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee and the White House launched a new initiative Friday aimed at getting entrepreneurs to create tech-based solutions for some of the city's gnarliest problems. The program is a start-up accelerator, of sorts: the 16-week workshop--called Entrepreneur-in-Residence San Francisco--will select three to five teams of entrepreneurs and provide them with mentorship from private sector corporations, including McKinsey and GE. Their goal: solve a public sector problem. “Rather than someone building an app that tells you how late the buses are running, it’s a bit like an app that tells you how the entire Muni system is running,” a mayor’s office spokesperson told VentureBeat. The $142 billion public sector is, according to the announcement, a widely-underserved market when it comes to technology--ironic ...
