Health Care Reform: California Adopts Favorable Federal Tax Treatment of Health Coverage for Adult Children Under Age 27


Employers and plan administrators that have operations in California should take steps to ensure that their reporting and payroll systems comply with recent state law changes affecting health coverage provided to children under age 27.

On April 7, 2011, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law California Assembly Bill 36 (AB 36). AB 36 conforms certain California income and employment tax laws to certain changes to the United States Internal Revenue Code (the Code) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidance relating to the favorable tax treatment of health benefits coverage for adult children under age 27. The favorable state tax treatment afforded under AB 36 applies retroactively as of March 30, 2010, which also conforms to the effective date of the parallel provisions under the Code.
