Reminder: ACA information Reporting Deadlines Approaching

03-Feb-2017

Employers subject to the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) information reporting requirements are reminded that the deadlines to file and furnish Forms 1094 and 1095 are quickly approaching. The reporting deadlines in 2017 are for reporting information on the 2016 calendar year, and are as follows:

  • Applicable large employers (ALEs)—generally those with 50 or more full-time employees, including full-time equivalents—must file Forms 1094-C and 1095-C with the IRS no later than February 28, 2017 (or March 31, 2017 if filing electronically). ALEs must also furnish a Form 1095-C to all full-time employees by March 2, 2017 (which is a 30-day extension from the original due date of January 31).
  • Self-insuring employers that are not considered ALEs, and other parties that provide minimum essential coverage, must file Forms 1094-B and 1095-B with the IRS no later than February 28, 2017 (or March 31, 2017, if filing electronically). These entities are also required to furnish a Form 1095-B to “responsible individuals” (may be the primary insured, employee, former employee, or other related person named on the application) by March 2, 2017 (which is a 30-day extension from the original due date of January 31).

 

Electronic Filing Requirements

Reporting entities filing 250 or more Forms 1095-B or Forms 1095-C must electronically file them with the IRS. Additional information on electronic filing can be found on the IRS ACA Information Returns (AIR) Program webpage.
