Employer Healthcare Coverage Deductions on 2012 W-2 Forms

Beginning with the 2012 W-2's, the ACA requires all employers to report the cost of coverage under an employer-sponsored group health plan. This 2012 requirement was optional in 2011.  Sage's Q4 2011 tax table update provided functionality to report this on next year's W-2's, however they did not provide a lot of detail for customers as to how to set this up.

Sage HRMS customers will need to review existing deductions to change the Deduction Type field to one of three new options. This will report the employee and employer contributions to a plan. However, this assumes that clients have their deductions linked to benefit plans, and that those plans are properly configured to calculate employer match. If customers do not have employer match calculations properly configured in Sage HRMS, these amounts will not appear on a W-2 (and they will therefore be in violation of the ACA). The webinar below will assist you to comply with these new regulations that take effect Jan. 1, 2012
