IRS Proposes Employer Mandate Rules for Health Coverage
AccountingToday ^ | December 30, 201 | Michael Cohn

Posted on 12/30/2012 4:22:01 PM PST by mdittmar

The Internal Revenue Service has issued proposed regulations on the shared responsibility for large employers to provide health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

The IRS noted that employers may rely on the proposed regulations for guidance until final regulations are issued. In addition, the IRS posted a questions and answers document on its Web site Friday to explain the Employer Shared Responsibility provisions under the Affordable Care Act and the new proposed regulations.

Under the provisions, if employers do not offer affordable health coverage that provides a minimum level of health insurance coverage to their full-time employees, they may be subject to an Employer Shared Responsibility payment if at least one of their full-time employees receives a premium tax credit for purchasing individual coverage on one of the new Affordable Insurance Exchanges.

If you have trouble with Obamacare, where do you send the complaint? To Obama?

Obamacare is not intended to function in any way, shape or form.

Its only purpose is to created chaos and contribute to "overwhelming the system."

The more screwed-up it is, the quicker it accomplishes its goal.

You probably will see unemployment numbers drop for a while as employers switch workers to “29ers” and have to hire additional “29ers” to fill the gaps.

The ‘Third Reich’ documentary about Hitler’s rise to power is on the History channel.. The similarities to the 0bama regime are chilling. They go after your health care first then change it into something far more sinister.. Then they come after your guns..

Cloward & Piven and also to steer a need for ‘Single Payer’. Regardless, culling the ones who were taught HOW America is SUPPOSED TO BE (the elderly) will commence shortly.

“Shared Responsibility”??

Why is your healthcare coverage anyone else’s responsibility?

Guns will have to be next as the only way to get medical care
Will be to hold a gun on a doctor.

At this point I'm just hoping they will give us a decent amount of generic pain pills.

The government will come up with a regulation defining 29ers as an illegal tax avoidance scheme. Unless the employer can demonstrate that the sole purpose for 29ers is something other than to avoid complying with the law.

They may eventually, but if it helps the unemployment numbers as I’ve theorized, it won’t come too quick.

Oh, come on. That's not the only way. You will also get medical care if you are a government employee, a union member, a regular contributor to the democrat party or are a minority, homosexual, atheist or illegal alien (if you are all four the doctor will make a house call).

i'm sending all of my medical complaints and questions to my congressman for answers, and when he delays, i'll be visiting his field offices demanding some answers from their boss who is a lazy no good drunk.

Which he really is ~ this is Jim 'molester' Moran!

Enough folks in this district do that to him he'll get POd and start challenging them to fights in the parking lot.

Better yet, why is anyone else’s healthcare MY responsibility?

I just love folks that don’t think that OCare won’t affect them. Even if they provide their own coverage.

This really isn’t about you subsidizing anyone.

But we will see what happens.

The idea that the IRS is involved in healthcare should strike fear in the heart of any thinking person.

My wife, the uber-tax CPA, says it is absurd that they’re just coming out with rules for a law that has been in effect this long.

Uncertainty is horrible for business. Democrats in general, and Obama in particular, simply don’t get this. Or are actively trying to screw up business, one of the two.

“A sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.”

One thing I'm sure about...When "they" come to cull me, I will cull many, many of "them".

Wait til we get single payer health care.

This is by design - to have the government be the insurer of first resort.

The private sector can’t afford the burden of health care costs. Until single payer is inaugurated, the economy will begin shedding jobs left and right.

Welcome to the wonderful world of ObamaCare - which our nation’s Obama voters voted to keep in November.

29ers won't help most businesses. Two 29'ers count as one full time equivalent. Look for the words FTE in the regs. Also, the key is coverage unaffordable to at least one employee. Ah, but what is unaffordable? Yes, employers are screwed until they get out of the healthcare business altogether, which is exactly what Obama is aiming for. Single-payer was always the goal.

Why not just make it 20 and double staff.
Or 10 and quadruple staff.

I don’t think so. No proof, but I think that we’re going to see lots of 29ers AND a reduction in over-all employment. Again - no proof, just a feeling that because I expect the economy to tank, unemployment will go up again. (Think dead-cat bounce).

"I expect the economy to tank, unemployment will go up again."

That's my economic crystal-gazing guess, too. There are still a lot of jobs that can be shifted over to China and India. Where there is no Obamacare mandate. An economic black hole lies waiting on the other side of the fiscal cliff.

Why have we been seeing the stories from businesses going to 29ers? Are they making a mistake?

Maybe if we overwhelm our representatives with calls and visits all day every day they may get the notion to repeal this monstrosity.

Make them answer ridiculous health care questions and tax questions and make them squirm

I have my own policy through BCBS because the plan at my work is worthless. I recently received another notice of increase of monthly payments.

I know some places that are doing just that. Typically they are setting up what is essentially job sharing. One employee works Mon, Wed, Fri - the other Tue, Thur. So if you need to work 40 hours to live you have to have two jobs. Typically this is clerks, wait staff, service persons....people who can ill afford to have their hours cut.

I guess if an employer you can say you are helping the economy by offering more employement opportunities.
