New Filing Deadline!
Ready to learn more about ACA Employer Reporting, including the new reporting deadline?
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires large employers and employers that sponsor self-funded medical plans to report extensive and detailed data for the calendar year that began January 1, 2015. A large employer for this purpose must have 50 or more full time equivalent employees across the control group.
If you have not already done so, now is the time to make a plan for how to complete the IRS Forms 1094/1095 that must be distributed to employees by January 31st each year, except in 2016 where the IRS delayed until March 31, 2016. Note that customers who signed up for our WorxTime reporting service do not need to participate in this webinar. The webinar would be helpful for customers who use the WorxTime tracking, but not reporting, service.
Webinar Explaining How to Complete the Forms
If you have not yet secured a resource to complete the forms on your behalf, it may be too late to do so for the 2015 tax year. The good news is that it is possible to manually complete the forms. General information about the employer reporting obligation is available on our website HCReducation.com and American Fidelity Assurance Company customers can review a recorded webinar summarizing the general requirements on the Online Service Center.
In addition, you may join American Fidelity Administrative Services (AFAS) for a webinar that will provide line by line instructions on how to complete the forms, and give you an opportunity to ask questions. We will offer this webinar on the following dates:
Thursday, January 7, 2016
12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. CST
Monday, February 8, 2016
12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. CST
The registration fee is $100. Please note that space is limited so register early.
Looking for an Easier Long-Term Solution?
AFAS offers a service to help customers with their ACA reporting obligation. Unfortunately the deadline has already passed to sign up for assistance completing the reports due in early 2016. However, if you sign up for the service for the reports due in early 2017 (for the 2016 tax year), we will provide a $100 credit for any customers who participate in the webinar.
