Affordable Care Act Tax Provisions for Small Employers

Some of the many Affordable Care Act tax provisions for small employers require the employer to provide an EIN (Employer Identification Number) on a W-9 form.  Employees who have not previously provided social security numbers may also have to do so (see additional details on this IRS webpage).

If you have 50 or fewer employees, you can purchase affordable insurance through the Small Business Health Options Program also known as SHOP.  Find a San Francisco Bay Area agent/broker who is certified to answer questions about SHOP and guide you through the regulatory changes.
