Recently, the IRS released an information letter regarding the Affordable Care Act's employer shared responsibility (pay or play) penalties. The information letter is intended to clarify the applicability of the penalties in light of President Trump's 2017 executive order broadly directing federal agencies to waive, delay or grant exemptions from ACA requirements that may impose a financial burden.

Employers who did not submit their EEO-1 snapshots for pay data reporting for the 2017 and 2018 tax years by September 30, 2019, are not off the hook.
The deadline has been extended to January 31, 2020, in a ruling by a Washington D.C federal judge on October 29, 2019. In April, Judge Tanya S. Chutkan of the U.S. District Court, DC Circuit ordered the EEOC to collect pay data for 2017 and 2018 by September 30, 2019.
EEO-1 Component 2 is generally required from employers with 100 or more employees during the “workforce snapshot periods” for 2017 and 2018. Employers with less than 100 employees may also be required to file if their association or common ownership with another company results in the joint entities having a collective total of 100 employees.
