BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
COLUMBIA, S.C.—The South Carolina Legislature has given final approval to a bill to allow employers to extend coverage to employees' adult children without employees facing state taxes on the coverage.
The legislation, S. 522, which lawmakers approved last week and sent to Gov. Nikki Haley, would conform the state's tax law to the federal law.
That law requires extending health care coverage to employees' adult children up to age 26. Subsequent Internal Revenue Service rules said the coverage can be extended on a tax-free basis through the end of the year in which the child turns 26.
South Carolina's action comes after that of a number of states, including Arizona, California, Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota and Oregon, which have approved conformity measures, while conformity bills are pending in several others.
Most states, though, do not have to take such action, because their statutes are automatically amended to reflect changes in federal tax law.
SACRAMENTO—The California Senate has given final approval to a bill allowing employers to extend coverage to employees’ adult children up to age 26—as required by the federal health care reform law—without employees facing state taxes on the coverage.
