Employers Without a Section 125 Plan Miss Out on HUGE TAX Benefits

Section 125 Premium Only Plan Compliance Checklist

If you still haven’t augmented your company’s benefits program with a Section 125 Premium-Only Plan, you are missing out on substantial cost savings – and so are your employees.

A Section 125 POP Plan is often referred to as a cafeteria plan.  You probably already know that a cafeteria plan allows employees to select from a range of benefit choices, such as health, dental, vision, or disability insurance, and then pay for those benefits through payroll deductions.  But you may not know the plan’s biggest benefit – its tax-advantaged status.

Those payroll deductions are made pre-tax, which means that they reduce the employee’s taxable income.  This, in turn, reduces the employee’s FICA and Medicare payroll taxes.  The lower taxable income also means lower payroll taxes for you, the employer.  You also enjoy lower FUTA taxes, and your state payroll taxes could also be lower.  Depending on the employees personal tax bracket many participants see tax savings of up to 49-50% on premiums run through the Section 125 plan.  Employers on avg. save 8.45% in FICA and FUTA savings and could be much higher depending on your state and county tax savings and/or workers compensation premiums.  You can check out the tax savings for you and your employees at our site http://www.taxfreepremiums.com/WhyUse.aspx
