The IRS has created a new, and user friendly website to provide information and guidance on the tax provisions of the ACA. This website is located at www.IRS.gov/aca.
The home page is divided into three sections that will allow individuals, businesses, and other organizations (such as governmental entities and tax exempt organizations) to access the health care laws, and receive education on how the laws may affect them.
The site provides information about tax provisions that are in effect now and those that will go into effect in 2014 and beyond. Visitors to the new site will find information about legal guidance, the latest news, and links to additional resources.
The IRS/ACA webpage is user friendly, with easy to find resource information. For example, the new web based flyer -- Healthcare Law Online Resources (Publication 5093), provides a number of informational links on the ACA for individuals and employers. The website also categorizes organizations into small (fewer than 50 full time employees) and large employers, as well answering frequently asked questions, such as “Do I need to do anything right now to get ready for the changes coming in 2014?”
