TASC (Total Administrative Services Corporation) and Asset Protection Group have partnered with IIAV to provide members and their clients a Section 125 plan. Section 125 Flexible Spending Plans are designed to pay certain qualified expenses (including health insurance premiums) on a pre-tax basis, thereby reducing their total taxable income and increasing their spendable/take –home income. Funds set aside for flexible spending accounts are not subject to Federal, State or Social Security taxes. On average, employees save from $.25 to $.49 for every dollar they contribute to the flexible spending account. Employers experience tax savings from reduced FIC, FUTA and SUTA taxes on participating employees. Let us help you make your business less taxing.
