House Ways and Means Committee Introduces Bill to Delay Cadillac Tax

posted on

Today, the House Ways and Means Committee announced the introduction of a number of bills dealing with ACA-related taxes, including one which would delay implementation of the Cadillac tax for one additional year – to 2021. When it goes into effect, the Cadillac tax would impose a 40 percent excise tax on high-cost employer-sponsored health plans.

There are many steps between the introduction of a bill and its passage, and there are other legislative issues which are likely to take precedence over this bill, including tax reform legislation and legislation for continued funding of the government. We will keep you apprised of any further developments related to this bill or similar efforts to delay implementation of the Cadillac tax.
