Therefore, take your payroll roster and eliminate the totals belonging to any individuals or contractors who make over $100,000 annually. Insert that dollar amount in field #1.
- Enter the number of employees making over $100,000. This is not a dollar amount, this is a quantity. Your business is eligible for $8,333 per employee who makes over $100,000. Insert the employee count in field #2.
- Enter your average monthly health insurance premiums and average monthly retirement benefits (if any). Enter those amounts in fields #3 and #4.
