Many restaurants are hearing that some Social Security numbers they submitted for employees and their dependents don’t match information in the IRS database. Employers filed their initial ACA-required reports with the IRS last spring, based on 2015 data. The IRS is issuing so-called “no-match” letters to employers as a result. It’s giving restaurants and other businesses until Dec. 31, 2016, to correct the alleged errors or show you made a good-faith effort to correct the information.
Now in its 80th year, TRA Marketplace will dazzle visitors with stunning and interactive displays, state of the science products and equipment, cutting edge technology and the latest news, trends and advice from dynamic industry leaders.
