Important Reminder for Employers in Waukesha and Milwaukee regarding Taxes

A reminder to employers: Effective January 1 of this year, you may no longer reimburse employees for their individual health insurance policies or pay the premiums directly to the insurance company on a pre-tax basis. Employers that continue to pay employee’s premiums or reimburse their payment must include these amounts in the employee’s taxable wages or be subject to substantial penalties. Only if the employer offers a group plan can pre-tax dollars be used for health insurance premiums.
