Affordable Care Act - Employer Mandate - 3 hrs

Recommended CPE Credit: 3 Hrs [B] The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has brought about the most significant change in healthcare since the passage of the 1965 legislation that authorized Medicare. It imposes healthcare-related requirements on health plans, health insurers, employers and individuals.

Eligible small employers may receive tax credits for providing health insurance coverage to their employees, and large employers may find themselves subject to tax penalties for failing to provide such employee coverage. This course will review the principal coverage provisions of the law and will examine its tax impact on employers.

Earned Income Tax Credit - 3 hrs

Recommended CPE Credit: 3 Hrs [B] EIC claims are also increasing in both number and amount . In the ten year period ending in 2010, the number of EIC claims increased from 19.6 million to 27.4 million, an increase of 39.8%. Not only had the number of claims for EIC increased over the period, the average credit per family also increased by 28.8%, from $1,704 at the beginning of the period to $2,194 in the year the 10-year period ended. The combination of an increased number of EIC claims coupled with an increase in the average credit caused the total amount of EIC claimed to skyrocket by 82.3% over the period from $33.4 billion to $69.7 billion.

In a recent year, 148.7 million individual federal tax returns were filed, and 28.9 million—19.4% of individual taxpayers—claimed the Earned Income Credit. Based on that percentage, it would not be unexpected that approximately one taxpayer in every five may claim the EIC.

The S corporation is taxed like a partnership, but in other respects, S corporations are taxed like C corporations.
