Unravel Tax Treatment of Healthcare Plans Under the Affordable Care Act
Congress has thus far been unable to create new health care legislation this year, so the Affordable Care Act (the ACA or “Obamacare”) is still the law of the land – complete with mandates, penalties and even tax credits. Because many practitioners thought that there would be new health care legislation, they’ve neglected to update their knowledge about the ACA, which is quite complicated when it comes to tax treatment of healthcare plans.
This session with tax attorney Arthur Werner provides updated information on the ACA for the rest of 2017 that will help practitioners to feel comfortable with their ability to assist clients – such as employers and individuals – in complying with the tax aspects of the law as it stands right now. Tax practitioners will get a complete understanding of the key tax and compliance issues under the ACA/Obamacare.
