This year is the year. Well, actually, next year (2016) is the year you have to file the report. The AHA reporting requirements kick in for all employers with 50 or more employees. Congratulations, if you have 50 employees, you’re a “large employer.” Here’s the link to the IRS page for Large Employers, you lucky devil, you!
Remember that if you have between 50 and 100 employees, you’re eligible for “transition relief” for 2015 (meaning relief from penalties). However, you’re not exempt from reporting even if you get transition relief.
To avoid this headache now, contact your ERP system support (or your payroll outsourcer) and find out what you’re going to need to do to be compliant. If they can’t help, contact us. We may know of a solution for your product.
