Despite numerous efforts this year to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), it remains the law of the land, at least for now — which means employers are still subject to those onerous reporting requirements.
For tax year 2017, Forms 1094-B, 1095-B, 1094-C, and 1095-C will likely be available soon after the start of 2018 — and the 2017 instructions have just been released by the IRS. Don’t wait until the last minute to start tackling these forms.
The reporting process tends to raise more questions than it answers, including:
- Are we required to fill out the 1095-C at all?
- If so, when and what are we required to report?
- How do the reporting requirements vary if we are fully insured vs. self-insured?
- How do we account for employees who are offered health coverage, but decline it?
- Who is required to report if we sponsor a plan for employees of multiple employers?
- Can we get a filing extension?
- What are the penalties if we mess up the reporting?
- How do we account for retirees and COBRA recipients on the 1095-C?
- What about multiple members of the same family who are all full-time employees with us—and all received offers of coverage?
- What do we do if we can’t get dependents’ Social Security Numbers—and how often are we required (or allowed) to ask for them?
