UNDERSTANDING THE ABC’S OF THE IRC ACA REPORTING REQUIREMENTS
March 31, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Chernoff Diamond 2015 Webinar Series –
IMPORTANT NOTE: This webinar is appropriate for Applicable Large Employers – those with 50+ full-time equivalent employees in 2014 who are subject to the new ACA reporting requirements under IRC 6055 and 6056. Smaller employers that either offer (a) no health coverage or who (b) offer employees insured group health coverage (including through a SHOP exchange) are not subject to this ACA provision.
The ACA employer mandate has begun (with some exceptions) and new reporting forms must be completed and issued to the IRS and employees for 2015. Applicable Large Employers must be able to properly categorize, capture and classify an employee’s status and healthcare coverage on a monthly basis. The IRS has issued final versions of Forms 1094 and 1095 (actually there are three versions of the forms referred to here as the “A”,“B” and “C” series) and employers are wrestling with what needs to be done to comply with the new reporting requirements.
In this webinar we will help you understand your ACA reporting obligations by answering such questions as:
- What is the purpose of these reports?
- Who is responsible to prepare and issue these reports and to whom?
- When and how must these reports be issued?, and
- Which forms do employers use?: Is it the “A” series, the “B” series or the “C” series of Forms 1094 and 1095; what parts of the forms must be completed and and how is the information reported. We will also show you some examples of how to complete these forms for different types of employees and employer plans.
This session will best be viewed with copies of the 1094 and 1095 forms. Copies of the forms will be made available to registered participants prior to the event.
