Affordable Care Act IRS Reporting Resource Center

This IRS-required reporting supports the monitoring of individual and employer health insurance mandates. Similar to last year, this reporting requirement will affect all self-insured employers as well as any employer—or controlled group of employers—with an average of 50 or more full-time employees, including full-time equivalent employees, during the prior year.

These reports are essential for the IRS to determine whether:

  1. An individual maintains minimum essential coverage for purposes of the individual health insurance mandate
  2. An individual qualifies for a premium tax credit from exchange plans
  3. An employer is subject to a shared responsibility penalty for failing to offer full-time employees affordable minimum essential coverage providing minimum value

The ACA forms share the same filing deadlines as Forms W-2 and 1099, and significant penalties may be assessed for noncompliance.

BKD has dedicated tax advisors who can help you determine what these changes mean for your organization and find a solution to remain compliant.
