Rulemaking on high-cost health plan excise tax continues

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is again seeking comments as they continue the rulemaking process of implementing the excise tax on high-cost health plans. The tax is scheduled to take effect in 2018. The new notice seeks feedback by October 1, 2015. The notice can be viewed here and is summarized here.

Last May, AWC submitted comments expressing concern that Washington cities may be disproportionately impacted by this excise tax, and we are again convening a group of interested cities to develop comments based on this new notice. If you have feedback, please contact AWC’s Candice Bock.
