Affordable Care Act Reporting Services – IRS 1094/1095
Effective January 2016, affected businesses are required to file information with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to demonstrate what benefits the employer offered to its employees the previous calendar year.
These forms, known as 1094/1095, will gather information that includes:
- Employee Data for all employees, current or terminated, who were eligible for benefits at any point during the prior calendar year.
- Coverage offered and provided, including the employee’s financial responsibility.
- Verification that coverage was offered each of the 12 months (or eligible periods) for the prior year.
This data will need to be entered into forms that are then to be delivered to the IRS and provided to all employees, current or terminated, who were eligible for benefits during the prior calendar year. The IRS announced on 11/18/2016 that it is extending the employee distribution deadline for form 1095. The deadlines associated with the filing of forms 1094/1095 did not change.
- The delivery deadline for 1095 forms, which were to be provided to eligible form recipients on or by January 31, 2017, has now been extended to March 2, 2017.
- The filing deadline for forms 1094/1095 to be manually filed with the IRS is February 28, 2017. The deadline for electronic filing with the IRS is March 31, 2017. These deadlines have not changed.
