The IRS is responsible for administrating elements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In order to effectively carry this responsibility, IRS relies on technology to assist with the administration of the ACA including the ACA Information System and the Information Sharing and Reporting System (IRS-S). These systems provide a secure, FISMA compliant capability that calculate, track and validate tax and related provisions of the ACA for both individuals and businesses and determine eligibility for health insurance.
