    If you haven’t put systems in place to provide the proper information to the IRS for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), now is the time. On June 29, 2015, the Trade Preferences Extension Act was signed into law, increasing the penalties for incorrect information returns. Penalties will be assessed for failing to file and filing incorrect or incomplete information.


    DescriptionOld Penalty AmountNew Penalty Amount
    Penalty for filing incorrect returns (per return)$100$250
    Penalty for incorrect returns if corrected within 30 days (per return)$30$50
    Penalty for incorrect returns if corrected by August 1
    (per return)
    Penalty for intentionally disregarding to file timely and correct returns$250$500
    Maximum penalty per calendar year$1,500,000$3,000,000
    Maximum penalty per calendar year if corrected within 30 days$250,000$500,000
    Maximum penalty per calendar year if corrected by August 1$500,000$1,500,000


    If you have over 50 FTE’s, you will be required in 2016 to submit the 1095-C form to remain in compliance with the ACA.
