IRS Marches Forward with Plans to Enforce ACA

While the future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) remains hotly debated in Washington, the IRS has made it clear that complying with the law as it exists today is not optional – and both employers and taxpayers who choose to ignore the reporting rules will face consequences.

Most recently, the IRS confirmed that the agency will reject 2017 personal tax returns unless filers report their healthcare coverage status. If you’re a covered employer, this means you must file 1095-C reporting forms and supply copies to your employees, or your employees’ tax refunds will be put on hold.

This is just the latest announcement from the IRS reinforcing their commitment to ACA reporting. Read more about IRS enforcement here >
