Transmittal Form 1094-C
As you may know, Form 1094-C is the transmittal form of Form 1095-C, and it summarizes the data found in its accompanying ACA return. It’s filed by Applicable Large Employers who are required to offer health insurance coverage to their fifty or more full-time employees. You don’t need to send a copy of Form 1094-C to your employees with their Form 1095-C, but it is required to have the Form 1094-C to the IRS by their ACA filing deadlines, which are:
- February 28, 2017, for paper filers and
- March 31, 2017, for e-filers.
There are two form revisions to Form 1094-C that you’ll want to make note of:
- Line 22, box B has been designated “Reserved” and should not be used. This box used to indicate the Qualifying Offer Method Transition Relief, which is no longer available for 2016.
- “Section 4980H” was put in before “Full-Time Employee Count for ALE Member” in Part III, column (b), to remind those filing that the section 4980H definition of “full-time employee” should be used for filling out this column, not any other definition an ALE may use for other purposes.
