Flexible Spending Account
As a business owner, you can use an FSA to reduce your social security, Medicare, and unemployment tax liabilities. You’ll also leave employees with more spending money per paycheck, thanks to savings on out-of-pocket expenses like doctor and dentist co-pays, prescriptions, and day-care costs.
How Does a Flexible Spending Account Work?
FSAs set aside money from each paycheck before payroll taxes are deducted. This gives employees more take-home pay, while you pay less in FICA and FUTA payroll taxes.
