IRS Postpones Requirement to Report Health Insurance Benefits on W-2’s

Last March, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) added the general requirement that the aggregate cost of employer-sponsored health coverage had to be reported on the Form W-2, effective for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2011. IRS notes that health insurance benefits are not taxable.  On October 12, 2010 The IRS announced that this policy has been revised, and employers do not have to report the cost of coverage under an employer-sponsored group health plan on the Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement for 2011. The reporting of health benefits is for information only and will be optional for 2011.

The change was made to give employers additional time to make any necessary changes to their payroll systems and other related processes and procedures.  The IRS also issued draft changes to the Form W-2 and requested that comments on the draft be provided within 30 days.
