Higher Standards: 62 Models Meet Tougher Criteria to Earn IIHS Awards

Just 15 vehicles qualify for the Top Safety Pick+ award from IIHS after the requirements were strengthened to include good-rated headlights and good or acceptable passenger-side protection in small overlap front crashes.

Another 47 vehicles earn the Top Safety Pick award, which now requires acceptable or good headlights. In contrast, headlights weren't factored in for 2017 Top Safety Pick, and an acceptable headlight rating was enough to bump a 2017 award winner into "plus" territory.

Preparing for ACA Health Care Reporting

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) created reporting requirements under Internal Revenue Code (Code) Sections 6055 and 6056. Under these rules, certain employers must provide information to the IRS about the health plan coverage they offer (or do not offer) to their employees.

Returns are due in early 2018 for health plan coverage offered or provided in 2017. Returns generally must be filed with the IRS by Feb. 28 (or March 31, if filed electronically) of the year after the calendar year to which the returns relate.

For the 2017 calendar year, returns must be filed by Feb. 28, 2018, or April 2, 2018 (March 31, 2018, being a Saturday), if filed electronically.
