REPEAL OF ACA
Yes, a Texas judge did rule on December 14, 2018, that the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) was invalid due to the elimination of the individual mandate penalty in 2019. No, that does not mean the ACA is gone. The White House has indicated that the ACA will remain in place pending appeals. Also, the IRS retains the ability to audit past Form 1094 & Form 1095 filings and issue penalties for noncompliance, The Democrats are promising to fight this ruling every step of the way. Ultimately, this issue will be resolved by the Supreme Court later in 2019.
