Please note: due to many government regulation changes in the last week, there are two important client alert notifications in this email. 

 

OVERTIME RULE BLOCKED BY FEDERAL COURT

 

On Nov. 22, 2016, a federal judge in Texas issued a preliminary injunction, halting the enforcement of the Department of Labor's (DOL) new overtime rule until further notice. The rule, which was set to take effect on Dec. 1, 2016, would have increased the salary threshold for the "white collar overtime exemptions" to $47,476 per year.

 

The judge's ruling gives employers across the country a reprieve from having to raise salaries for exempt employees to the new threshold or pay them overtime.

 

However, an appeal of the ruling is possible. The DOL said in a statement that it was reviewing the court's order and considering any next steps.

2016 FURNISHING DEADLINE FOR

ACA REPORTING DELAYED

 

On November 18, 2016, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued Notice 2016-70 to:

  • Extend the due date for furnishing forms under Sections 6055 and 6056 for 2016 for 30 days, from January 3, 2017 to March 2, 2017; and
  • Extend good-faith transition relief from penalties related to 2016 information reporting under Sections 6055 and 6056. 

Notice 2016-70 does not extend the due date for filing forms with the IRS for 2016. The due date for filing with the IRS under Sections 6055 and 6056 remains February 28, 2017 (March 31, 2017, if filing electronically).
