Webinar: ID# 1023229
Recorded CD
About This Course:
With the myriad of new ACA requirements and potential errors that go along with them, many employers may find themselves for the first time faced with the possibility of owing excise taxes and the requirement to file the Form 8928, Return of Certain Excise Taxes Under Chapter 43 of the Internal Revenue Code.

This webinar helps employers understand which types of errors trigger the Form filing requirement and how to correct an error in a timely manner to possibly avoid excise taxes and filing the Form. This material also explains how to complete the Form and the pros and cons to filing the Form when no excise tax is owed because the error was corrected in a timely manner.

Because the failure to file the Form timely to report and pay excise taxes can subject the employer to reporting penalties and interest in addition to the excise taxes owed, with no statute of limitations, it is important that employers understand their obligations with respect to the Form.
