New eBook Helps CPAs Understand Key Tax Provisions of the ACA

Zane Benefits, the #1 Online Health Benefits Solution, announced today the publication of a free eBook “The CPA's Guide to Health Care Reform”. The new eBook helps CPA's understand the key tax provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and ensure clients make the right tax decisions.

The ACA requires CPA's, Tax Advisors and Accountants to be experts on the key provisions of health care reform. As a result, CPAs are becoming a "go-to" for all health insurance decisions.The CPAs Guide to Health Care Reform

The primary shift in the role of CPA's centers on assisting business and individual clients in determining:

  1. The size of the business based on full-time equivalent employees (FTEs) vs. annual revenue, and

  2. The amount of tax credits and subsidies available - and whether or not that outweighs the tax penalties and costs of offering qualified group health insurance.

For example, CPA's are now required to help clients consider whether it is more valuable for them to go to a state exchange or a private insurer based on how many FTEs they have.

Additionally, CPA's are now required to help clients understand the financial and tax benefits of new health insurance solutions such as Defined Contribution Health Plans.

The new 55-page eBook is available for free download at the website and covers the following topics:

  • The key tax provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)

  • How state health exchanges impact corporate and personal taxes

  • The different tax penalties and tax credits

  • How the tax credit for an individual is calculated

  • Why many small businesses are dropping coverage
