Businesses Challenge IRS Bid to Start Enforcing Insurance Mandate

Businesses are pushing back on the Internal Revenue Service’s decision to begin enforcing the Affordable Care Act’s employer insurance mandate, challenging penalties that run into the millions and asserting the agency is wrong to impose the fines.

Some businesses argue that the repeal of the individual mandate should also nullify the employer mandate, which was established partly to ensure consumers could meet their individual coverage requirements under the ACA.
