The real reporting implications of the ACA are just now coming to light for most organizations. Gone are the days when the IRS would give companies credit for “good faith” reporting efforts and waive financial penalties. Starting with tax year 2017, penalties start to kick in, and they’ll come with a serious financial sting. It’s more important than ever for organizations to understand what they’ve been doing right, what they need to correct and how they can avoid costly penalties. Meanwhile, the fate of the ACA hangs in the balance, as Republicans try to replace it with new legislation.

In this program, Ray Littlefield and Tom Hospod from Sovos will review:

  • The latest on the ACA from Capitol Hill and what’s to come.
  • Common mistakes and observations from 2016 filings.
  • How companies can prepare for accurate 2017 ACA filings.
