The Affordable Care Act requires that applicable large employers (ALEs) provide minimum essential coverage to eligible employees, which is enforced by the IRS based on information reported in IRS Forms 1094 and 1095. In response to Form filings, the IRS may issue Letter 226J, which is an initial penalty letter assessing liability for the Employer Shared Responsibility Payment (ESRP). The IRS may also issue the penalty letter based on the number of Forms W-2 filed with the IRS and the absence of Forms 1094 and 1095 on file.

This webinar will address the best practice for responding to ACA penalty letters, including:

  • How to respond to an IRS penalty letter
  • Completing Response Form 14764
  • Requesting extensions
  • Amending IRS Forms 1094 and 1095
  • Penalty calculations
  • Challenging penalty calculations
  • Completing Form 14765 (PTC Listing)

This 60-minute intermediate-level webinar will help employers understand how to effectively handle ESRP penalty letters to limit liability for excessive penalties.
