A Bad Recipe for ACA Compliance Can Lead to An Expensive and Unsatisfying Experience

On Demand

It’s no secret the IRS has been actively enforcing the Affordable Care Act’s Employer Mandate. And some quick-service restaurants have been assessed millions of dollars apiece in IRS penalties.

The IRS’s ACA enforcement efforts are just getting started. This fall, employers should expect Letter 226J penalty notices to be issued to organizations determined by the IRS to have failed to comply with the ACA for the 2016 tax year. These notices will arrive with potentially higher penalty assessments than were levied for the 2015 tax year.

Quick-service restaurants, with multiple locations, a significant mix of full-time and part-time workers, and high turnover rates, are particularly at risk because of the complexity of the ACA. In fact, some quick serves have still not filed the required information because they don’t realize that they fall under the IRS requirements.

In this webinar, ACA experts will provide an update on what to expect in the Letter 226J penalty notices for 2016 that are issued this fall, why to expect higher penalty assessments, and steps that can be taken to assess the risk of receiving penalties from the IRS.
