Health Care Reform: Form W-2 Reporting of Employer-Provided Group Health Coverage

1 min


Beginning in 2013, large employers will need to report on Forms W-2 the cost of the group health coverage that they provide to their employees.  Small employers issuing fewer than 250 Forms W-2 will be exempt, for now.  To prepare for this reporting obligation, employers should begin working with their payroll administrators to make sure that their systems are updated by the end of 2011, so that they can track the cost of any coverage provided in 2012 and report it on the Forms W-2 that will be issued in January 2013.
