Employer Shared Responsibility Penalties Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA)

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

The IRS has recently issued proposed rules and a set of related questions and answers to help provide guidance for employers regarding the shared responsibility requirements of the ACA. Employers can rely on these proposed rules until the final regulations are issued.

A quick glance at the “proposed rules” reveals this document is quite lengthy, very detailed and somewhat confusing.  Obviously, it’s impossible to provide an exhaustive summary of these regulations in this blog post. Instead, our intent is to provide a brief overview of the requirements of the shared responsibility provisions. And also provide some guidance provided by the proposed regulations.
