* Please note, this number does not take into account the total amount the employer would be contributing, just the possible tax credit they can receive. For example, if the average salary is $50,000 and there's a 3% match, that's a $1,500/yr contribution from the employer. If there's less than 50 employees, this tax credit would cover the first $1,000, leaving the employer with a $500 net contribution per employee.
