IRS’s Guide to ACA Compliance for Applicable Large Employers

blog_4_image

In 2016, the Affordable Care Act has issued reporting requirements for applicable large employers. Because of
special circumstances, the IRS recently drafted a guideline for employers to clear up any questions in order to remain in compliance.

These employers must report if a full time employee was offered minimum essential coverage providing minimum value and if they accepted minimum essential coverage. The ACA has required applicable large employers (ALEs) to use Form 1094-C, Transmittal of Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage Information Returns, and Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage for its reporting requirements.
