Save your self-employed clients an average of more than $5,000 a year with an HRA

The Kentucky Society of Certified Public Accountants has partnered with TASC (Total Administrative Services Corporation), a national third-party benefits administrator, to help you navigate the complexities of Healthcare Reform (the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), and to bring you the opportunity to offer tax-advantaged benefits that save your small business owner clients an average of more than $5,000 a year. TASC’s services are backed by both an audit and deduction guarantee.

AgriPlanNOW and BizPlanNOW are Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) that enable your qualified small business owner clients to deduct 100% of federal, state, and FICA taxes for family medical costs resulting in an average savings of more than $5,000 each year!

Impact of IRS Notice 2013-54

Great news — HRAs with one employee will experience no change and are unaffected by IRS Notice 2013-54. Unfortunately IRS Notice 2013-54 states that employers who sponsor HRA Plans with more than one eligible employee (and do not offer Group insurance) can no longer receive a tax advantage through a HRA Plan unless they modify their Plans to either an Integrated HRA (sponsor Group insurance) or Limited Purpose HRA.

If your Clients have multiple employees and do not sponsor a Group Health Plan, they can still provide a tax-free benefit that allows themselves* and their employees to contribute to individual insurance premiums and out-of-pocket medical expenses. Instead of a HRA, their Plan design would be based on a Section 125 Flexible Spending Arrangement. TASC’s Non-Employer Sponsored Premium and Non-Excepted Flexible Spending Arrangement (NESP/NEFSA) Plan allows both employers and employees to make pre-tax contributions to any of the employer-selected FSA accounts.

**Employers who file their taxes as a S-Corporation and are a 2% or greater shareholder and their related family members cannot participate in a Flexible Spending Arrangement. A Limited Purpose HRA would allow the S-Corporation employer and their related family members to receive tax savings on dental, orthodontia, vision and long-term care only.
