Affordable Care Act Employer Reporting Requirements for 2015

As part of the continued roll out of the Affordable Care Act, beginning in 2015 large employers must file Forms 1094-C and 1095-C with the IRS.  A large employer is typically one with 50 or more full-time and full-time equivalent employees.  The information returns are due by February 29, 2016 or March 31, 2016 if filing electronically.

  • Form 1094-C, Transmittal of Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage Information Returns

 

  • Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage

 

Even though employers with 50 to 99 full-time employers are not subject to the employer mandate for health insurance coverage until 2016, they are still required to comply with the reporting requirements for 2015.  Additional information can be found on IRS.gov.
