What Does Captive Coverage Provide?
Once you qualify as an insurance company through the U.S. federal income tax board, you must also meet the risk distribution requirements. Our team can go through these requirements with you and discuss your options.
Captives change large deductibles into an insurance premium. After setting your retention level, an actuary determines your expected losses to calculate your captive premium. The next step is researching whether your premium is deductible from your U.S. federal income taxes.
Provision 83(b) under the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) gives an employee or startup founder options for paying taxes on the entire fair market value of the restricted stock at that time.
When in doubt regarding taxes or insurance policies, it is always best to get a professional opinion to offer some advice and guidance on your next steps.
