Description:
Both otherwise uninsured individuals and employers with 100 or more full-time or full-time equivalent employees must be on top of the complicated Affordable Care Act (ACA) rules as they apply in 2016 and beyond. All employers, whether large employers or not, should be alert to the IRS's release of regulations under §105(h) which, when released, will apply anti-discrimination rules to all employers regardless of size. Of equal importance is the impact of Notice 2015-17 and how it impacts employer reimbursements of employees for premiums they pay for health insurance, including S corporation reimbursements of greater than 2% shareholders. This course will focus on the key issues and planning strategies that tax practitioners need to know in order to advise their clients regarding this far-reaching legislation.
