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
[Opinion]
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."
