Finding Out If IRS Has Issued ACA Penalty Notice

Recommended Posts

Lately, all the publications have been alerting us that we need to check our mailrooms for the ACA Penalty Notices, because of the limited time to respond. I have been checking everywhere withing our organization, but so far, nobody is reporting that we have received any notice. Has anyone discovered a way to find out from the IRS directly (either by calling or through an e-mail or posting) whether a penalty notice has been issued?

Since the only notices IRS is currently sending are with respect to 2015 you should check your 2015 Forms 1094-C and 1095-C and see if you admitted/confessed liability for penalties in the event any of your full-time employees received Marketplace subsidies during 2015.

For example, do any of your Forms 1095-C have a code 1H (no offer of coverage) in line 14 and line 16 is blank (no penalty "excuse" code listed) potentially invoking the 4980H(b) penalty?

And on your 1094-C did you check "No" in column (a) for any of lines 23-35 thereby potentially invoking the 4980H(a) penalty?

If you didn't waive any of these white surrender flags the IRS computer system won't generate a penalty notice so rest easy.
