  • What you don’t know about the new 2015 ACA rules may cost you a bundle!

    Overview
    This information session will highlight three primary problem areas of the ACA and solutions to enable you to address the complexities of complying with this law:
    Large Employer Requirements: the new 2015 ACA healthcare reporting and filing requirements (with a deadline of January 2016 fast approaching).
    Excise Tax: the onerous tax for employers who reimburse employees for purchasing individual health insurance policies.
    Cadillac Tax: an update on the Cadillac Tax scheduled to apply to employer-sponsored plans beginning in 2018.

    Large Employer ACA Reporting Requirements – make sure you are fully prepared

    Get answers to critical questions about the new ACA Information Reporting Requirements:
    • Who must file and report information to the IRS?
    • What information must be provided to employees?
    • What are the deadlines?
    • How can I get this all done?
    • What is “noncompliance” and what are the penalties the IRS could impose?

    Excise & Cadillac Taxes – the cost to your bottom line could be substantial
    Absent additional legislative changes, the excise tax on employers who reimburse employees for the costs of individual health insurance policies is not going away. The same is true for the “Cadillac Tax.” One penalty tax is effective now, except for 2% S corporation shareholders. The other starts in 2018.

    Learn why these excise taxes exist and how to avoid them.
    • What is the Cadillac Tax and how is it determined?
    • What plans will be impacted?
    • What’s a plan sponsor to do?
