Update on Penalties

  • Penalty amounts go up every year The increase is because of what is called “the premium adjustment percentage” – inflation for premium costs.

  • The 1095-C reporting needs to be done regardless – similar to the W-2 reporting. Fines are up to $520 per form.

  • Is the IRS really going to enforce these penalties?

    The answer is, yes. The IRS was audited by the Treasury Inspector regarding the ACA Compliance Verification system that was put in place. Recommendations were adopted and the IRS is moving forward.

    • In a series of information letters, the IRS has clearly indicated that it won’t waive employer mandate penalties under the ACA.
    • Employers who have failed to file necessary forms with the IRS are already receiving letters.
    • The IRS has been sending out penalty letters for 2015.
