Questions about W-2 reporting requirements for health plans to comply with PPACA? As we continue to prepare for the 2012 reporting requirements, I thought it would be beneficial to provide a link to the sites that the IRS has published to give guidance. The most recent "Question and Answer" is available here with links to all previously published notices. They have also prepared a nifty chart based on the content of Notice 2012-9 available here.
While the 2011 reporting requirements was option, that does not mean it went away altogether so you should be looking at what is required for the 2012 year now so you can begin collecting the correct information.
