The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has issued final 1095-A, 1094-B, 1095-B, 1094-C, and 1095-C forms that employers, plan sponsors, health insurers and the Marketplace will use to report health coverage information to applicable individuals and the IRS as required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Final instructions have also been issued.
The 2018 Forms and Instructions are largely unchanged from calendar year 2017. Employers and plan sponsors should take note of the timing requirements and review the information reporting requirements through IRS resources available at the Applicable Large Employer Information Center. Employers should also continue to be on the lookout for IRS penalty letters or notices related to past ACA filings and should immediately present any materials received to their ACA reporting vendors, legal counsel and qualified tax advisers.
