A working knowledge of tax law as it relates to health insurance
We live in interesting times when it comes to health care obligations for employers. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) fundamentally changed the way in which individuals and businesses approach healthcare. While attempts to repeal the ACA have proven unsuccessful so far, an end to the individual mandate is coming in 2019 as a result of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. In the meantime, ACA compliance obligations remain both complex and mandatory. Otherwise uninsured individuals and employers with 50 or more full-time or full-time equivalent employees must be on top of the complicated ACA rules as they apply in the current year. This course will focus on the key issues and planning strategies that tax practitioners need to know in order to effectively advise their clients during this uncertain time. The course will also address other options employers have for assisting employees with healthcare costs as well as tax and planning considerations for non-healthcare-related employer-provided fringe benefits.
