Webinar: ID# 1022785
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
The deadlines for the first year of reporting under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have now passed, but it’s not too early to start thinking about reporting for 2016.

In a rare display of generosity, the IRS set a nearly unheard of “good faith” standard when it came to penalties for incorrect or incomplete 2015 forms, but there’s no evidence that the same lenient rules will apply for 2016. Plus, many of the transition relief rules are no longer available. So this year, you really need to be on your game.

You may still be wondering about the correct answers to many of the questions that plagued you last year, such as:
  • How do you report employees who turned down your offer of coverage?
  • What happens with folks who go on COBRA mid-year (or mid month)?
  • How do you report retirees, or COBRA recipients, who didn’t work for you for any part of 2016?
  • How do you handle offers to multiple members of the same family who all work for you?
  • How do you account for employees who move from part time to full time mid year (or vice versa)?
Don’t lose any more sleep over your ACA reporting obligations. Instead, join us for a thorough webinar when Ashley Gillihan, a skilled employee benefits attorney, will provide key insights into how to ensure that your ACA reporting form preparation and reporting practices are legally compliant for 2016.

  • The fundamentals of ACA reporting
  • Common reporting mistakes to avoid
