2017-11-13T08:36:42+00:00 November 12th, 2017|ACA Tracking, Reporting Compliance|0 Comments

As stated back in April of this year, the IRS will begin enforcement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) any day now. They have now published a draft of the soon to be sent Employer Shared Responsibility Payment (aka “Penalty”) notification letter.

(Integrity Data 8 of 10) Repeal ACA, replace ACA, repair ACA or just leave it alone? While the lawmakers debate, employers are left with a lot of confusion.

Managing employee overtime or leave is challenging with outdated or manual systems. In many cases, business leaders are tallying up overtime hours after they’ve been noted on a timesheet.

The recent statement reverses a prior practice of accepting individual tax returns which omitted information related to health insurance coverage on line 61 of tax form 1040.

When can I start filing forms 1095-C for my employees?

2017-10-25T09:06:29+00:00 October 24th, 2017|ACA Tracking, Reporting Compliance|0 Comments

UPDATED While this is a pretty straightforward question, the answer is not quite as simple. As a general rule, you can begin filing forms 1095-C once the IRS has released the final version of the form for the filing season. The IRS recently released final copies of the 1094/5 series forms (e.g. 1094-C/1095-C) for tax year [...]

The Affordable Care Act – the repeal/replace saga continues

2017-10-19T09:00:00+00:00 October 18th, 2017|ACA Tracking, Reporting Compliance|0 Comments

Just when we thought the Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal/replace effort was off the table for this year, two executive decisions that impact the ACA are made. It is important to note, however, that neither impact the employer mandate so our advice remains the same: stay the course for 2017 employer reporting. Two executive decisions [...]
