[Guidance Overview]
Dec. 28, 2015
"Before [the final regs issued Dec. 16], there was no official connection between Section 4980H -- the ACA regulations in the Internal Revenue Code that detail the employer shared responsibility requirements -- and any percentage other than 9.5 percent, which remained the only rate given in ACA regulations for affordability testing....
