U.S. Chamber of Commerce Comments to IRS on Section 4980I: Excise Tax on High Cost Employer-Sponsored Health Coverage (Notice 2015-16) (PDF)
U.S. Chamber of CommerceLink to more items from this source
May 18, 2015

"We urge Treasury and the IRS to carefully promulgate rules that only impose the tax on the plans that Congress intended -- the excessively generous group health plans -- and not group health plans that merely provide the minimum required level of coverage.... [As] the law was being enacted, an analysis by the Joint Committee on Taxation estimated that only a small subset of plans would be affected by the tax. Instead, roughly 30 percent of all employers will be subject to the tax in 2018 and between 50-60 percent will be hit in 2022."
