Applicable Large Employer Burden Survey, Tax Year 2018

OMB #1545-2212

The Applicable Large Employer Burden Survey is an important project that can benefit you and thousands of other taxpayers.

We hear from taxpayers that tax reporting requirements are time consuming and expensive. We are conducting a survey of randomly selected taxpayers to learn more about these costs.

Your answers will help us estimate the amount of time and money Applicable Large Employers spend to meet their Affordable Care Act reporting requirements each year. We also use this information to learn how to reduce taxpayer burden. All information provided will be used for research purposes only and participation is voluntary.

Only those taxpayers who are randomly selected may participate in the study. Data is being collected throughout the next year, so you may still be selected even if you have not yet received an invitation. We estimate that it will take 10 to 15 minutes to complete the survey.

This survey is being conducted by Westat on behalf of the IRS. You may view the survey by going to the survey link provided in IRS letter you received.
