Why is Employer Shared Responsibility reporting required?

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) added section 6056 to the IRC, which requires applicable large employers to file information returns with the IRS and provide statements to their full-time employees about the health insurance coverage the employers offered.  The IRS uses the information provided on the information returns to administer the employer shared responsibility provisions of IRC section 4980H.
