Montana Minimum Wage Change

Posted on in Affordable Care Act, Agriculture, Business, Payroll, Taxes

There has been a mandatory change to the Montana Minimum Wage poster. New labor law posters are required.

The Montana Minimum Wage poster has been updated to reflect the new minimum wages effective January 1, 2015. The Montana minimum wage will increase from $7.90 per hour to $8.05 per hour based on the cost-of-living adjustment. Best practice is to update your state labor law posters by December 31, 2014 to remain in compliance.

A downloadable poster can be found at the following web address:

Understanding the Individual Shared Responsibility Provision

Posted on in Affordable Care Act

Under the Affordable Care Act, the Federal government, State governments, insurers, employers, and individuals share the responsibility for health insurance coverage beginning in 2014. Many people already have qualifying health insurance coverage (called minimum essential coverage) and do not need to do anything more than maintain that coverage.

The individual shared responsibility provision requires you and each member of your family to either:

  • Have minimum essential coverage, or
  • Have an exemption from the responsibility to have minimum essential coverage, or
  • Make a shared responsibility payment when you file your 2014 federal income tax return in 2015.

You will report minimum essential coverage, report exemptions, or make any individual shared responsibility payment when you file your 2014 federal income tax return in 2015.

Find out more about this provision HERE on the IRS website.
