Benefits Compliance Update:
Received Letter 226J-NOW WHAT?
Provided by

Many employers with more than 50 full-time
employees may have already received penalty assessments from the IRS, in the thousands and sometimes millions of dollars in the form of Letter 226J. These penalties relate to the 2015 year and to the ACA’s Employer Mandate and employees who received subsidies on the exchange.

The IRS issued Letter 226J to certain Applicable Large Employers (“ALEs”)1. This letter describesthe proposed Employer Shared Responsibility Payment (“ESRP”) owed for calendar year2015.

Letter 226J provides specific information on the ESRP and instructions for responding to the proposed assessment. The IRS will issue a Notice and Demand for payment of the proposed assessment (as the final amount) if the ALE fails to timely respond to Letter 226J. If an employer disagrees with the assessment, timely responding via Form 14764 and including a statement explaining the objections and any back up documentation is crucial.

ALEs that receive these letters should carefully review them. It will be important to have 2015 Forms 1094-C and 1095-C available as you work through the information. Other materials may be relevant as well, including documentation regarding employee eligibility, affordability and minimum value of employer-sponsored coverage and/or copies of employee waiver forms.

This summary is intended to explain the information contained in Letter 226J and to provide general guidance on these requirements.

Attachedfor your review is a brief compliance article on IRS Letter 226J.
