ExpertQuote to Hold Free Webinar on Critical Topic: ACA Employer IRS Reporting Requirements

Campbell, California (PRUnderground) March 4th, 2015

Corporate benefits firm ExpertQuote Insurance Services Inc., has announced a complimentary expert webinar focusing on ACA employer reporting and IRS requirements by attorney Caitlin Gadel.

Separate from the ‘Pay vs. Play’ (Employer Mandate) rule, large employers are required to report certain information to the IRS in 2016 about the 2015 year. Large employers are also required to give full-time employees a copy of this information. The penalty for not filling out these returns is $100 per failure, not to exceed $1.5 million. The webinar will focus on information to help you begin gathering data to prepare for filing these informational returns with the IRS.

This critical webinar is presented by associate attorney Caitlin Gadel who practices in the areas of employee benefits and employment law. She advises employers on compliance issues relating to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, maintaining ERISA compliant employee benefit plans, and other employment matters.

Health Care Reform has become a bureaucratic nightmare, with some 159 new government agencies, boards and programs busily enforcing the roughly 20,000 pages of rules and regulations associated with this law.  “ACA Compliance is now a critical aspect for employers, Health & Human Services, ERISA, and the I.R.S. are shelling out regulations on a monthly basis” said Raj Singh COO of ExpertQuote  he continued, “Corporate Benefits Brokers now need to provide clients with a team of experts in Health Care Reform and Human Resources as part of a comprehensive consulting practice.”
