Form HI Instructions I am an employer who paid traditional health insurance premiums for my employees but heard this referred to as a credit for employers who paid disability insurance premiums. Is there a difference? Disability health insurance is insurance against the following: ● bodily injury, bodily disablement or accidental death, or the medical expense or medical reimbursement involved; or ● bodily disablement or the medical expense or reimbursements resulting from sickness. In essence, disability insurance is the same as “health insurance” and includes any insurance plan offered by an insurance company that provides coverage for the following conditions: ● personal health, ● disablement, ● accidental death, or ● medical expenses or the reimbursement of these expenses. However, disability insurance does not include workers’ compensation insurance or credit disability insurance. These two types of insurance premiums cannot be used in calculating this credit. What information do I have to include with my tax return when I claim this credit? ● Individuals. If you are filing a paper return, include a copy of Form HI with your individual income tax return. ● C corporations. If you are filing a paper return, include a copy of Form HI with your corporate income tax return. ● S corporations and partnerships. If you are filing a paper return, include Form HI with your Montana information return Form PTE and include a separate statement identifying each owner and their share. Part II. Qualifications To qualify for this credit, you must answer yes to each of the four statements in Part II. Line 1 – You must have been in business in Montana for at least 12 months. Line 2 – You must employ at least 2 but not more than 20 employees who work at least 20 hours a week during the year the credit is claimed. For the purpose of this credit, an employee can be the sole proprietor, a partner in a partnership, or an independent contractor as long as each one of these classes of employees are included as an employee under your employer health benefit plan. If you had seasonal employees that increased your total employee count to more than 20 employees in the year, you are not eligible to claim this credit. However, if your seasonal employees did not increase your employee count to more than 20, you will qualify for this credit as long as you meet all other requirements. If you had employee turnover throughout the year that increased the total number of individuals who worked for you to more than 20, you will still be eligible for the credit as long as your total employee count did not exceed 20 employees at any one time. Line 3 – At least 50% of each employee’s insurance premium must be paid by the employer. The insurance policy must meet the minimum requirements of the Small Employer Health Insurance Availability Act. Line 4 – You cannot claim this credit for a period of more than 36 consecutive months which begins with the first month for which the credit is claimed. In addition, this tax credit cannot be granted to an employer or the employer’s successor within 10 years of the last consecutive credit claimed. You will need to complete a separate Form HI for each source you are receiving the credit from. For example, if you are a partner in one partnership that qualifies for this credit, and you, as an individual, also qualify for this credit, you would need to complete two forms. Part III. Credit Computation If you file electronically, you do not need to mail this form to us unless we contact you for a copy. Line 1 – Multiple the total of Column F by 50%. Your credit cannot exceed 50% of the premium cost for each employee. Complete the table in Part III. Please note that there are only 10 lines on the chart because you are not entitled to a tax credit for more than 10 employees. Line 2 – Enter the total of Column G. Part I. Partners in a Partnership or Shareholders of an S Corporation If you complete Part I, do not complete Part II or III. If you received this credit from a partnership or S corporation, you will need to fill out Part I in its entirety. Your portion of the credit can be obtained from the Montana Schedule K-1 that you received from the entity. In addition to reporting your portion of the credit, you will need to provide the partnership’s or S corporation’s name and Federal Employer Identification Number. If you are a partner or shareholder in more than one partnership or S corporation, you will need to complete a separate Form HI for each entity you are receiving the credit from. Line 3 – Enter the smaller of line 1 or line 2. If the amount on this line exceeds your tax liability, you cannot carry back or carry forward any of your unused credit.

Form HI is a Montana Corporate Income Tax form. States often have dozens of even hundreds of various tax credits, which, unlike deductions, provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction of tax liability. Some common tax credits apply to many taxpayers, while others only apply to extremely specific situations. In most cases, you will have to provide evidence to show that you are eligible for the tax credit, and calculate the amount of the credit to which you are entitled.
About the Corporate Income Tax
The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.
Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
