On Tuesday, July 2, 2013, the U.S. Department of Treasury announced that it will provide an additional year before the mandatory employer and insurer reporting requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) begin.  

In a blog posting, Mark J. Mazur, Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy at the U.S. Department of Treasury, stated that the Administration has been engaging in a dialogue with businesses about the new reporting requirements under the ACA.  

According to Mr. Mazur, "[w]e have heard concerns about the complexity of the requirements and the need for more time to implement them effectively."  

The additional year will meet two goals, according to Mazur:

First, it will allow us to consider ways to simplify the new reporting requirements consistent with the law.  Second it will provide time to adapt health coverage and reporting systems while employers are moving toward making health coverage affordable and accessible for their employees."
