FTAs that submit 250 or more pieces of information to the IRS must file returns electronically. For information on communication procedures, delivery formats, operational rules and validation procedures for electronically submitted returns under the CBA Return Information Program (VAS), refer to air`s User Guides and Publications. Corporations that have co-ownership or are otherwise affiliated under certain rules of Section 414 of the Internal Revenue Code are generally aggregated and treated as a single employer to determine FTA status. If the combined number of full-time and full-time equivalent employees for the group is large enough to meet the definition of an FTA, then each employer in the group (called an FTA member) is part of an FTA and is subject to the provisions of the employer`s shared responsibility, even if the employer would not be an FTA separately. There is an important distinction that employers should be aware of with respect to these aggregation rules. While employers who have common ownership or are otherwise related are generally grouped together and treated as a single employer to determine whether an employer is an FTA, the possible liability under the employer`s shared responsibility provisions is determined separately for each FTA member. A special standard also applies to employers of government agencies in the application of aggregation rules under section 414. Since section 414 refers to co-ownership and ownership is not a typical agreement for government entities, and because specific rules under section 414 of the Government Entities Code have not yet been developed, government agencies may apply a reasonable and bona fide interpretation of section 414 to determine whether they should be consolidated with other government entities. Further examples can be found in section 54-4980H-2 of the ESPR Regulations.

The Act respecting the entertainment permit in the common areas of the G.S. 18B-1001(21) allowed the owner or owner-association of a „multi-tenant establishment” with two or more liquor-approved businesses to obtain an entertainment licence in a community area for a designated consumption area on the property where individuals purchase liquor from facilities and open containers of that liquor (including beer, B.
Wines and spirits) in specially designated cups from the designated premises of such enterprises to a designated consumption area or return to the premises of an enterprise with the authorization of the owner of the enterprise. During the same legislature, the legislator also created a new law on social districts in the G.S. 18B-904.1, which authorizes cities and counties to make orders designating social districts, in which customers of businesses adjacent to the social district may take open containers of alcohol (including beer, wine and spirits) from specially designated cups on the premises of an ABC-approved facility in all areas, who are designated as part of the social ward.

An FTA does not have to offer its part-time employees substantial minimum coverage to avoid payment of the employer`s shared responsibility. Obtaining the premium tax credit from a part-time employee for the purchase of coverage in the marketplace cannot trigger the payment of the employer`s shared responsibility.
