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 2019 health care information reporting. Is your organization ready?

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?
