Beginning with the 2015 tax year, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires most employers to submit to the IRS information about the healthcare coverage that was offered to eligible employees. This is done with Form 1095-C.
By 2/1/2016, employers must submit the required 1095-C forms to the IRS and send a copy to employees as well.
The Form 1095-C is an annual statement that reports the following information to the IRS:
- Whether employees were eligible for employer provided health coverage in 2015
- If the coverage was in compliance with ACA requirements
- The months that employees were eligible for coverage
- Details about the cost of coverage that was offered
- Who in a family was eligible for healthcare coverage
This short video provides important information about Form 1095-C for employees and employers.
