IPMA-HR Comments on IRS/Treasury Excise Tax Regulations

Tags:  (2015 May 15th)

In coordination with other employer associations, IPMA-HR submitted comments on the IRS and Treasury’s proposed regulations for administering the excise tax, which goes into effect in 2018. IPMA-HR comments focused on ensuring that the excise tax does not unequally affect older employees and retirees; health care costs for high-risk employees remain low; and that the per-employee dollar limits for coverage is subject to an annual “health cost adjustment percentage” as opposed to a cost-of-living adjustment.
