About This Course:
It may feel like you just got finished with your 2015 Forms 1094-C and 1095-C, but the deadlines for 2016 are just around the corner. And the reporting requirements are burdensome, stressful, and confusing.

You may be wondering about any or all of the following:
  • Are you required to fill out the 1095-C at all?
  • If so, when and what are you required to report?
  • How do the reporting requirements vary if you are fully insured vs. self-insured?
  • How do you account for employees who are offered health coverage but decline it?
  • Who is required to report if you sponsor a plan for employees of multiple employers?
  • Can you get a filing extension?
  • What are the penalties if you mess up the reporting?
  • How do you 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 you—and all received offers of coverage?
  • What do you do if you can’t get dependents’ Social Security Numbers—and how often are you required (or allowed) to ask for them?
Unfortunately for employers, while much confusion and uncertainty remains around ACA reporting, the IRS has gotten rid of the “good faith” filing standard this year—so it’s more important than ever to get it right.

  • 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 3 challenges first-year reporting presented—and how to overcome those for 2016 reporting
  • Common ACA reporting traps and pitfalls to avoid
  • And much, much more!
