June 2015 Employer Webinar

Penalties, Taxes, and Fines, Oh My!

June 9, 2015



The Affordable Care Act (ACA) introduced a variety of new penalties, fines, and taxes that employers are working hard to avoid paying. Two significant penalties include the excise tax, and penalties faced by applicable large employers that do not meet their employer-shared responsibility play or pay obligations. Finally, the implementation of the Cadillac tax is looming, and although the industry is awaiting further regulation and guidance, understanding the basics can help you in the future.

 This webinar will:

  • Explain the excise tax and what triggers them
  • Explain self-reporting requirements of the excise tax and what happens if you don’t
  • How to file IRS Form 8928
  • Explain the HSA comparable contribution rules and taxes for violations
  • Explain when the excise tax is not imposed
  • Best practices to remedy excise tax violations
  • Explain the employer shared responsibility penalties
  • How to calculate “A” penalties under play or pay
  • How to calculate “B” penalties under play or pay
  • Explain when the penalties will be due
  • Explain the Cadillac tax- what we know, and what we are waiting for
  • Best practices as the industry awaits Cadillac tax implementation

This 90-minute basic to intermediate webinar will help you determine when a penalty is owed and how to report non-compliance.
