최근 연방의회에서 폐지시키려다 무산된 오바마케어. '건강보험개혁법(ACA)'에 따라 풀타임 종업원 50~100명 미만의 중소기업도 종업원들에게 건강보험을 의무적으로 제공해야 합니다. 또 고용주는 이와 관련된 세금보고 기록도 제출해야 합니다. 그 세금보고 기록 제출 마감 기한이 내일(3월31일)까지 합니다. 만일 내일가지 제출이 어렵다면 30일 연장이 가능하다고 하는데요. 혹시 해당 한인들은 조항을 준수했는지 확인해보시면 어떨까요?

BUSINESSES NEED TO MAKE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT FILINGS WITH THE IRS BY MARCH 31 OR REQUEST AN AUTOMATIC EXTENSION
Some businesses may have suffered from wishful thinking when the legislation to repeal and replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) was proposed by Speaker Ryan and trumpeted by Republican leaders in Congress.
President Trump’s support for the legislation may have provided those businesses with hope that they might not have to continue filing employee healthcare data with the IRS.
No such luck.
Now that it’s clear the ACA will remain the law of the land for the foreseeable future, businesses with 50 or more employees are expected to file ACA compliance information with the IRS. The electronic filing deadline for submitting 2016 employee healthcare data on IRS 1094 and 1095 schedules for the 2016 tax year is March 31. That’s right, it’s this week.
If for some reason your business cannot provide its ACA information by this week’s deadline, there is an option. You can request a 30-day extension.
A one-time 30-day automatic extension for electronic filing is available using IRS form 8809 if requested on or before the March 31 deadline. This form (Application for Extension of Time to File Information Returns) can be submitted through the IRS FIRE system. Submitting the extension request on paper via mail or fax also is accepted, although use of the FIRE system is encouraged by the IRS.
If you miss filing this extension request by March 31, you need to file your employee healthcare information with the IRS as quickly as possible to minimize your exposure to potential penalties.
Businesses failing to submit 2016 employee healthcare data by March 31 can face potential penalties under the ACA..The penalties for late filings and general ongoing non-compliance can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. A recent industry report projected that U.S. companies could face up to $31 billion in ACA penalties for non-compliance with ACA requirements for the 2016 tax reporting period.
Hopefully, your business is prepared to file its information by the March 31 deadline. If not, asking for the 30-day extension by that date is definitely your best option for avoiding hefty penalties from the IRS.
