Health Care Law Tax Provisions: IRS Recorded Webinars for Employers and Coverage Providers

Dana Halvorson

According to an August 20, 2015, IRS Tax Tips email alert, “Employers and health coverage providers now have access to recorded webinars from IRS about the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA’s) employer provisions and related tax requirements. If you are a business owner, tax manager, employee benefits manager, or health coverage provider, you can access and review these videos anytime to better understand how the health care law may affect your organization. Each of the following ACA videos on the IRS Video Portal provides about 40 minutes of detailed information on the specific tax provision mentioned in the title.” 

Some examples of the webinars they have include, “Employer Shared Responsibility Provision (47 minutes), Employer-Sponsored Health Coverage Information Reporting Requirements for Applicable Large Employers (37 minutes), and Information Reporting Requirements for Providers of Minimum Essential Coverage (35 minutes).” The alert goes on to note that you can “view the recorded webinars in the IRS Video Portal using one of the following tabs: Businesses, Tax Professionals, Governments and Non-Profits. After clicking on one of these tabs, simply select ‘Affordable Care Act’ from the list of topics on the left side of the screen, and you will see a list of recordings about these and other ACA topics.” 

More information about the ACA can be found at IRS.gov/aca and on the AHCA/NCAL ACA website.
