The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is still in effect for 2017. The ACA provides for individual and employer mandates to obtain or provide minimum essential health coverage. Employers and coverage providers are required to furnish reports to employees and file with the IRS information returns indicating the offer and provision of affordable minimum essential coverage and to indicate exemptions from the requirements. In this webinar Expert Patrick Haggerty will discuss the reporting requirements, information returns, and compliance issues.

Information returns regarding coverage of individuals must be furnished to them so they can determine premium subsidies or shared responsibility payments. The ACA also requires that certain employers report information concerning the cost of health care coverage provided to employees on Form W-2.

Session Highlights:

  • Distinguishing between small employers and applicable large employers (ALEs)

  • The special reporting requirements for employers with self insured plans

  • The reporting requirements for each type of employer and who is responsible for the reporting

  • A view of each of the forms and instructions for preparing the forms

  • Review of Form W2 reporting requirements related to the cost or value of employer sponsored health care plans

  • Information reported to employees and information provided to the IRS – what it means and how it is used

  • What to do to avoid or mitigate noncompliance costs or penalties

  • Special provisions applicable to small employers

Why You Should Attend:

Between legislative initiatives by Congress and executive actions by the White House, the status of the ACA requirements for 2017 has been confusing at best. An understanding the reporting rules for 2017 and the risks and consequences of noncompliance are essential for businesses to avoid or mitigate costs. In addition, the IRS has begun sending Letter 266-J to applicable large employers to notify them that they may be liable for an employer shared responsibility payment (ESRP) and the proposed amount of the ESRP based on the information reported on the employer’s 2016 1095-C and 1094-C. The webinar will discuss the reporting requirements, penalties, and how to respond to notices.

Who Should Attend:

  • HR managers and staff

  • Payroll managers and staff

  • Third party payroll service providers

  • Benefits administrators and consultants

  • Insurance providers

  • Small employers

  • Tax practitioners

  • Companies that provide employees with health coverage or are subject to the employer mandate

  • Any employer that is an applicable large employer (ALE)

  • Any small employer who may be eligible for tax credits under the ACA
