Have You Determined Your ALE Status?
This is step one. If you are still going through your employee records and trying to figure out if you are even required to file, here is some advice to help you!
First ask yourself, “Did my business employ 50 or more full time employees, this year?”
If the answer is no, you must consider your part-time or seasonal employees. Do you have a total of 50 full time equivalent employees? The term “full-time equivalent” means that your part-time employees may collectively add up to one or more full-time employees.
ACAwise decided to take the guesswork out of this process, you can easily determine your ALE status on our website.
