Nev. Admin. Code § 608.104 - Minimum wage: Determination of whether employee share of premium of qualified health insurance exceeds 10 percent of gross taxable income

Current through March 28, 2022

1. To determine whether the share of the cost of the premium of the qualified health insurance paid by the employee does not exceed 10 percent of the gross taxable income of the employee attributable to the employer, an employer may:
(a) For an employee for whom the employer has issued a Form W-2 for the immediately preceding year, divide the gross taxable income of the employee paid by the employer into the projected share of the premiums to be paid by the employee for the health insurance plan for the current year;
(b) For an employee for whom the employer has not issued a Form W-2, but for whom the employer has payroll information for the four previous quarters, divide the combined total of gross taxable income normally calculated from the payroll information from the four previous quarters into the projected share of the premiums to be paid by the employee for qualified health insurance for the current year;
(c) For an employee for whom there is less than 1 aggregate year of payroll information:
(1) Determine the combined total gross taxable income normally calculated from the total payroll information available for the employee and divide that number by the number of weeks the total payroll information represents;
(2) Multiply the amount determined pursuant to subparagraph (1) by 52; and
(3) Divide the amount calculated pursuant to subparagraph (2) into the projected share of the premiums to be paid by the employee for qualified health insurance for the current year; and
(d) For a new employee, promoted employee or an employee who turns 18 years of age during employment, use the payroll information for the first two normal payroll periods completed by the employee and calculate the gross taxable income using the formula set forth in paragraph (c).
2. As used in this section, "gross taxable income of the employee attributable to the employer" means the amount specified on the Form W-2 issued by the employer to the employee and includes, without limitation, tips, bonuses or other compensation as required for purposes of federal individual income tax.
