Recent Guidance on Electronic Filing of ACA Information Returns for Applicable Large Employers
ADPLink to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
June 17, 2015
"The required format for all ACA Information Returns is XML. Returns will not be accepted electronically in any other format, and there are no online 'fill-in' forms to facilitate small volumes of returns.... Testing is required.... Test files must be submitted in an XML format, and the submitter must verify that the IRS processed the transmission and returned a Receipt ID, acknowledgment and associated error file. According to the IRS, test submissions must exactly match the answer key for each test scenario (including leading, trailing, and embedded spaces; punctuation, and capitalization)."
