Approximately 100,000 "non-compliant" Applicable Large Employers (ALEs) received Letter 226-J, penalty notices in December 2017 some as high as a few million dollars. Thousands of additional penalty notices are expected to be mailed in Q1 – 2018. As an accounting professional you need to understand what a Letter 226-J is and equally important, how to respond particularly since the IRS requires a response within 30 days. It’s also important how to proactively audit 2016 and 2017 forms and filings to proactively mitigate IRS penalty risk.
The outlook is ominous. Non-compliant employers are at risk and will face material penalties!
