An Applicable Large Employer (ALE) that does not offer coverage meeting certain requirements under Code Section 4980H may have exposure to an employer shared responsibility payment (ESRP). The ESRP amounts are indexed each tax year as shown in the table below and calculated based on information reported on the ALE’s Forms 1094-C and 1095-C.
If the ALE reports that it did not offer coverage to at least 95% of its full-time employees and dependents and at least one full-time employee receives a subsidy for Marketplace coverage, then the IRS will propose an ESRP amount that is equal to the number of full-time employees (minus up to 30) multiplied by the 4980H(a) ESRP amount. Alternatively, even where the ALE offers coverage to enough full-time employees and dependents, if the ALE reports that the coverage offered did not meet minimum value or affordability standards and a full-time employee receives a subsidy for Marketplace coverage, the IRS will propose an ESRP amount that is equal to the number of full-time employees receiving the subsidy multiplied by the 4980H(b) ESRP amount.
