Podcast Episode 134: IRS Mandates Electronic Filing for Smaller Employers

In this episode, Chase Cannon and Suzanne Spradley address recent IRS guidance that mandates electronic filing of certain tax forms – including Forms 1095-C – for smaller employers. Chase describes the background from Congress and the IRS and explains what it means now that any employer filing 10 or more forms (previously, this was 250) will be required to do so through the IRS electronic filing system. Suzanne and Chase discuss the impact on smaller employers, along with updated employer mandate penalties and certain state filing requirements for employers. Chase closes with an outline of a proposed bill in Congress addressing benefits continuation for employees locked out or participating in a strike.
