2011 1040 income tax form   The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA) provides certain former employees, retirees, spouses, former spouses, and dependent children the right to temporary continuation of health coverage at group rates. 2011 1040 income tax form COBRA generally covers multiemployer health plans and health plans maintained by private-sector employers (other than churches) with 20 or more full and part-time employees. 2011 1040 income tax form Parallel requirements apply to these plans under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).

that provide or administer COBRA continuation coverage must provide notice to assistance eligible individuals of the COBRA premium assistance. 2011 1040 income tax form   The 65% of the premium not

employment tax liabilities. 2011 1040 income tax form For information on how to claim the credit, see the Instructions for Form 943. 2011 1040 income tax form The credit is treated as a deposit made
