ECFC Statement on Congress’ Two-Year Delay of “Cadillac” Tax

December 18, 2015

Washington, D.C. – Earlier this week, Congress introduced a broad tax package that includes a two-year delay of the so-called “Cadillac” tax— a 40 percent excise tax on employer based health plans that had been scheduled to start in 2018. If the legislation passes, as anticipated, the delay until 2020 will provide welcome, but only temporary, relief to millions of Americans. While the ECFC views this delay measure as an interim achievement and is grateful to those who have continued to advocate against the Cadillac tax, it stands by its vital commitment to repealing or revising the tax as soon as possible.
