1094-C And 1095-C Reporting Requirements For 2018: What To Do Now To Get A Jump On Upcoming ACA Compliance Deadlines

Webinar: ID# 1026328
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Despite numerous efforts this year to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), it remains the law of the land, at least for now, which means employers are still subject to those onerous reporting requirements.

For tax year 2017, Forms 1094-B, 1095-B, 1094-C, and 1095-C will likely be available soon after the start of 2018. Don’t wait until the last minute to start tackling them. The reporting process tends to raise more questions than it answers, including:
  • Are we required to fill out the 1095-C at all?
  • If so, when and what are we required to report?
  • How do the reporting requirements vary if we are fully insured vs. self-insured?
  • How do we account for employees who are offered health coverage, but decline it?
  • Who is required to report if we sponsor a plan for employees of multiple employers?
  • Can we get a filing extension?
  • What are the penalties if we mess up the reporting?
  • How do we account for retirees and COBRA recipients on the 1095-C?
  • What about multiple members of the same family who are all full-time employees with us—and all received offers of coverage?
  • What do we do if we can’t get dependents’ Social Security Numbers—and how often are we required (or allowed) to ask for them?
Join us when Ashley Gillihan, a skilled employee benefits attorney, will provide answers that help prepare you for next tax season’s challenges. This webinar will assume an intermediate to advanced level of familiarity with ACA reporting and the B-series and C-series forms, so if you already know the basics but have been at all tripped up by any particular details, this event is for you!

You’ll learn:
  • Your organization’s information reporting requirements under the ACA—which is still the law until further notice
  • What to expect with any changes in the law—will penalties be softened, if not lifted?
  • Penalties to watch out for under Section’s 6055 and 6056 of the IRS Code
  • How to ensure proper distribution and filing to avoid information-reporting penalties
  • The top three challenges first-year reporting presented—and how to overcome those
  • Common ACA reporting traps and pitfalls to avoid
  • And much more!
