ACA Reporting Still Required for Applicable Employers

Between the continued debate in Washington, efforts to “repeal and replace” and the recent Tax Act, you may wonder where the Affordable Care Act (ACA) stands. To cut through the confusion: None of these developments changed the responsibility of employers to prepare and report.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 only modified the individual mandate, removing penalties for individuals who don’t purchase insurance on the ACA exchange, effective 2019. For applicable large employers (ALEs) with 50 or more full-time (or full-time equivalent) employees, however, the ACA obligations remain unchanged. You must file the proper 1095 forms with the IRS and send summary statement to employees by the 2019 deadlines.

Not only that, but the IRS remains steadfast in its enforcement initiatives. Noncompliant employers could face costly penalties for failing to meet the obligations. Read more about IRS enforcement here >
