How to become a Core Documents Flex Affiliate for Section 125 and HRA plans — Accountants, Payroll Companies and Insurance Agents

Flex Affiliate partners help clients avoid audit nightmares by offering affordable plan documents through Core Documents.

Why should you sign up for Core Documents’ Section 125 & HRA Flex Affiliate Program for Accountants, Payroll Companies and Insurance Agents? Three little letters: IRS.

Imagine this scenario playing out in your client’s office: IRS Business Audit #204378.

IRS Agent: “Let me see your Section 125 Plan Document. What do you mean you don’t have one? We now have to re-class all these years of insurance premium deductions back to taxable income — plus interest and penalties.”

This business owner may soon be filing a lawsuit for damages against his accountant, payroll company and/or insurance agent who either knew or should have known that he needed this plan document to pre-tax benefits.



Core Documents has developed a Section 125 & HRA Flex Affiliate Program for Accountants, Payroll Companies and Insurance Agents that will turn this potential liability into a profit center.

Core Documents, the nation’s primary source for affordable Section 125 & HRA plan documents, is looking for more partners in their national Flex Affiliate Program. It is an ideal partnerships for CPAs, Accountants, Payroll Companies, Plan Administrators and Insurance Agents.

The Flex Affiliate Program will turn a potential IRS liability into a new profit center by allowing them to private label Core Documents’ entire website with their logo or website header and contact information.

In a recent interview, Gene Ennis CFC, the President of Core Documents and the person behind the Flex Affiliate Program, said, “I’m always amazed at the volume of small business owners who routinely disregard the IRS and Department of Labor requirement to adopt a formal plan document and summary plan description before they pre-tax insurance premiums or medical expenses. This should be done before the business starts offering their employees the option to pre-tax, or avoid paying income taxes on their share of the insurance premium or medical expenses.”

The buck stops . . . where?

The CPA, accountant or bookkeeper assumes this is the insurance agent’s responsibility. The insurance agent, who normally doesn’t make a commission on Section 125 plan documents, never bothers to bring it up.

The end result is hundreds of thousands of small employers who have been setup for an IRS audit surprise like the one in the above scenario. As we’re all aware, there are more than enough attorneys waiting in the wings to help those business owners recoup these losses.
