The Affordable Care Act is still the law.
As a result, reporting requirements are in force for Tax Year 2017
Deadlines are almost here – Are you prepared to report?
The headlines over the last 12 months made it seem like the Affordable Care Act was going away and, as a result, some employers believe they are not responsible for reporting to the IRS.
The ACA has not been repealed or replaced, and the deadlines for reporting on Tax Year 2017 will be here before you know it.
