PPACA ups the ante for small biz employee classification—The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) mandate that will require employers with more than 50 full-time employees to provide health coverage for those employees or pay a penalty that can reach $3,000 per employee has many small business clients scrambling to plan for years ahead.

Unfortunately, the IRS and Department of Labor have caught on to this trick, and scrutiny over worker classification has never been more thorough. This heightened scrutiny is raising the stakes for small business clients — getting it wrong could subject these clients to substantial tax liability, as well a large employer status under the PPACA — and the accompanying penalties.
