ACA Large Employers: Guidance for IRS Letters Concerning Employer Shared Responsibility Payments

Posted Tuesday, June 12, 2018 6:27 am

The IRS recently issued guidance to help applicable large employers understand the “Letter 227” they may have received.  Letters 227 are not a bill; they are acknowledgement letters the IRS sends to close an Employer Shared Responsibility (ESRP) inquiry or provide the next steps regarding the proposed ESRP.

The five different 227 letters are:

  • Letter 227-J acknowledges receipt of the signed agreement Form 14764, ESRP Response, and that the ESRP will be assessed. After issuance of this letter, the case will be closed. No response is required.
  • Letter 227-K acknowledges receipt of the information provided and shows the ESRP has been reduced to zero. After issuance of this letter, the case will be closed. No response is required.
  • Letter 227-L acknowledges receipt of the information provided and shows the ESRP has been revised. The letter includes an updated Form 14765 (PTC Listing) and revised calculation table. The ALE can agree or request a meeting with the manager and/or appeals.
  • Letter 227-M acknowledges receipt of information provided and shows that the ESRP did not change. The letter provides an updated Form 14765 (PTC Listing) and revised calculation table. The ALE can agree or request a meeting with the manager and/or appeals.
  • Letter 227-N acknowledges the decision reached in Appeals and shows the ESRP based on the Appeals review. After issuance of this letter, the case will be closed. No response is required.
