Media Alert: ACA Best Practices Webcast on Avoiding IRS Penalties: Why Acting Now Can Save You Penalty Dollars Later

ROSELAND, NJ--(Marketwired - Aug 16, 2016) -  Has your business received a "Marketplace Notice?" Do you know what it is, why you've received it and what you should do next?

A Marketplace Notice is generated by the Marketplace or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services whenever an employee applies for and receives a premium tax credit or a direct subsidy to help them pay for health care coverage from state or federal marketplaces. The notice gives the employer a chance to appeal the premium tax credit. 

Receiving a Marketplace Notice can lead to paperwork and alert you to potential fines depending on the health coverage offered to your full-time employees. Understanding the implications of receiving a notice can help you prepare to manage the situation in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. Acting now may save your business the expense of penalties later!

ADP is offering three webcasts targeted at HR leaders, finance leaders, and accountants. Participants will learn:

  • What is a Marketplace Notice?
  • Who is sending these notices?
  • When will you receive them?
  • Should you respond -- and how?
  • What is the potential impact to your employees?
  • What are the potential IRS penalties for failure to file and for Employer Shared Responsibility?
  • What is the latest IRS information on penalty relief?
  • What are some tips for responding to penalty notices and what documents do you need to retain?
  • How is 2015 different than 2016?
