As amended, the HCTC allows a taxpayer to take a credit equal to 72.5 percent of the amount paid by the taxpayer for coverage of the taxpayer and family members under qualified health insurance during the taxable year. The increased credit applies to all coverage months beginning after February 12, 2011. A copy of the Trade Adjustment Assistance Extension Act of 2011 is available?áhere.
