Understanding the ACA Reporting Requirements:
New Rules, New Responsibilities for 2019 Filing

ACA Reporting

The Affordable Care Act is still alive, and that means health care information reporting is still required this winter and into the foreseeable future. And January is crunch time for your 2018 health care information reporting. Is your organization ready?

Bad news: The IRS isn't going easy on you anymore. It's now fully enforcing the employer mandate and assessing strict penalties for mistakes on your form 1095s and 1094s.

The first three years of employer ACA reporting did not go smoothly, and lots of employers got tripped up. WARNING: Penalties have more than doubled for filing incorrect information returns, including Forms 1095! So the pressure is on to get it right the first time.

On Wednesday, January 16, join your peers for a complete primer on the health care information reporting rules. This is your last, best chance to learn the step-by-step requirements for completing each form correctly the first time, so you can avoid costly penalties.

These IRS reporting requirements are the single most important addition to your duties in a generation. And they continue to generate tons of confusion in the employer community:

  • Who has to file these forms this year?
  • Which form do we file – Form 1095-C or 1095-B?
  • What are the deadlines?
  • Must all employees be given the forms?
  • What counts as an "offer of insurance"?
  • Can we be penalized if an employee turns down our offer of health insurance?
  • What's an authoritative transmittal?
  • What happens if we don't have a dependent's Social Security number?
  • What's a limited non-assessment period?

Get answers to these questions – plus your specific ACA reporting questions – from a true payroll expert, attorney Alice Gilman, editor of Payroll Legal Alert.
