In 2010 the Affordable Care Act (ACA), often referred to as “Obamacare,” was signed into law, providing more Americans with health insurance coverage that is affordable and meets a minimum value.  Beginning in 2015, the ACA generated additional reporting responsibilities for employers pursuant to IRC Section 6055 & 6056.  The IRS ACA reporting requirements apply to companies with 50 or more full-time employees. SPS/GZ is a full-service ACA reporting company that provides personalized service & exceptional support and utilizes state-of-the-art technology to create and e-file forms.
