Greta E. Cowart, a shareholder at Winstead P.C., Dallas,  has published the report “Putting the Shared Responsibility Penalty Puzzle Together.” This report, which is in the Benefits Practitioners’ Strategy Guide,considers how an employee is determined by the employer to be a full-time employee who may trigger the shared-responsibility tax under the Affordable Care Act if the employee obtains coverage on an exchange and receives cost-sharing reductions or premium tax credits, and the employer doesn't offer affordable coverage or provide minimum value. The report includes extensive references to the applicable regulations, examples and practice tips.
