Affordable Care Act Update: Additional Medicare Tax Withholding Required in 2013
January 2, 2013

By Steve Gerlach

The IRS recently issued guidance for employers on withholding the Additional Medicare Tax required under the Affordable Care Act starting in 2013.

COMING SOON: On December 28, 2012 the IRS issued new regulations regarding the pay or play system. Look for an upcoming alert outlining the regulations and what employers need to know.

To help employers with ACA compliance, Bernstein Shur has assembled an ACA Team — a multi-specialty group of attorneys from employment law, litigation, business law and ERISA. The ACA Team is available for flat-fee, full compliance audits and half-day and full-day “bottom-line” workshops.
