What's New

Deduction for compensation paid by health insurance providers.    Section 162(m)(6) limits the allowable deduction for remuneration for services provided by individuals for or on behalf of certain health insurance providers. See Limitation on tax benefits for remuneration under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act under Limitations on Deductions, later.

Reminders

Patient-centered outcomes research fee.   The Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148, amended by Public Law 111-152) (the “Act”) imposes fees on issuers of certain health insurance policies and plan sponsors of certain self-insured health plans to help fund the Patient- Centered Outcomes Research Institute. The fees, reported on Form 720 and paid annually, are based on the average number of lives covered under the policy or plan. The fees apply to certain health insurance policies and certain self-insured health plans with policy or plan years ending on or after October 1, 2012, and before October 1, 2019.

  You can find more information about Act provisions, including links to published guidance, at www.irs.gov/aca.

Photographs of Missing Children

The Internal Revenue Service is a proud partner with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Photographs of missing children selected by the Center may appear in instructions on pages that would otherwise be blank. You can help bring these children home by looking at the photographs and calling 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) if you recognize a child.

Unresolved Tax Issues

The Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) is an independent organization within the IRS whose employees assist taxpayers who are experiencing economic harm, who are seeking help in resolving tax problems that have not been resolved through normal channels, or who believe that an IRS system or procedure is not working as it should. The service is free, confidential, tailored to meet your needs, and is available for businesses, as well as individuals.

The corporation can contact the TAS as follows.
