Linda Mendel, of counsel in the firm’s Columbus office, was quoted in a Tax Analysts Tax Notes story entitled “Correction to Employer Mandate Regs Clarifies Multiemployer Plan Guidance.”   The story states:

“The IRS clarified transition relief for multiemployer plans under section 4980H in a correction to the proposed regs (REG-138006-12), stating that employers who contribute to multiemployer plans will not be subject to penalties if the multiemployer plan offers appropriate coverage to individuals who meet the plan's eligibility requirements.

‘This is what we hoped that the Service meant by the transitional rule for multiemployer plans,’ said Linda R. Mendel of Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP.”
