The ACA is Here to Stay, Now What?

With a constantly evolving conversation around the Affordable Care Act (ACA), many employers were wondering if reporting was going to stay or go. After months of uncertainty, it is now clear the ACA is here to stay, at least for now. In fact, the IRS issued a warning on October 20, 2017, stating they will begin implementing the ACA mandate penalties for employers. Accurate and compliant reporting for the 2017 tax year will be more important than ever to avoid costly penalties.

In effort to help you prepare for 2017 reporting, our ACA team will be hosting two webinars in November and December. We’ll be covering important deadline dates, process overview and common errors/mistakes. Make sure to save your spot today.

ACA Webinars

Program length: 30 minutes

As health coverage has expanded under the ACA, employers have experienced the increasing burden of reporting to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which uses a host of tax forms to ensure certain rules are met. In addition, the federal government continually looks to refine regulations. Therefore, employers and human resources departments must not only be aware of the ACA’s basic rules, but they must also stay vigilant in understanding the ever changing landscape.  It’s more important than ever for organizations to understand what they’ve been doing right, what they need to correct and how they can avoid costly penalties.
