|Potential Employer Penalties Under the ACA (PDF)|

"Historically enforcement of the filing requirement and collection of the excise tax has been light, but the IRS is now indicating that it expects employers to report failures and pay fines as applicable.... It is not entirely clear from the IRS instructions whether the form must be filed even if no tax is due because the failure was due to reasonable cause and corrected promptly. It is also unclear how to determine if a failure is due to reasonable cause.... The penalty for filing Form 8928 late is 5% of the unpaid excise tax for each month the form is late, up to a maximum of 25%. A separate penalty calculation applies for late payment of the excise tax."
