The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 has many complex issues. This webinar explains the basics of the employer health care mandate and the impact of maintaining minimum essential health care coverage, which take effect in 2014, and the penalties for failing to comply. Also covered will be the additional 0.9% hospital insurance (HI) tax, the 3.8% Medicare contribution tax and other provisions taking effect in 2013. This on-demand webinar educates tax professionals so they can help their clients plan for the changes initiated by the Affordable Care Act.

Upon completion of this on-demand webinar, you will be able to:

  • Define terms necessary to understand the employer health care mandate.
  • Identify the requirements an employer must meet to be subject to the rules of the employer healthcare mandate.
  • Analyze when an employer is subject to a penalty (also referred to as “excise tax”) and how to calculate the penalty.
  • Advise employers of their responsibility to withhold tax for their employees when compensation exceeds certain thresholds.
  • Calculate the Medicare contribution tax for those individuals subject to the tax.
  • Discuss the change in medical deductions and the exceptions for 2013.
