A & B Taxes

  • What are the A-Tax and the B-Tax? In the simplest terms these two taxes are as follows:
    • A-Tax of $2000 per employee - per year when a company fails to offer healthcare to less than 70% of their full time employees.
    • B-Tax of $3000 per subsidized employee - per year if the employer fails to offer a plan that is affordable and minimum value.

    • What happens when an employee goes to an exchange and declares that their employer is knowingly non-compliant with the Affordable Care Act Laws?
    • Where does the exchange send that noncompliant employer information to? (Read - IRS)
