While lawyers discuss Obama versus Trump administration policies, the IRS is busy calculating fines for both non-compliance and non-reporting of Form 1095-C Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) March 07, 2018
The Internal Revenue Service is issuing steep fines for companies in violation of Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirements. Fines are for Tax Year 2015, the first year ACA mandates, also referred to as Obamacare, were to be applied. Since late last year, hundreds of companies have received penalty notices amounting to thousands of dollars per employee.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
While lawyers discuss Obama versus Trump administration policies, the IRS is busy calculating fines for both non-compliance and non-reporting of Form 1095-C Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage. eFileMyForms® provides an easy-to-use reporting mechanism for ACA compliance for Tax Years 2017 / 2016 / 2015. Users can import data to the eFileMyForms site where integrated business rules and validations instantly help identify data related errors that could trigger IRS penalties.
eFileMyForms (EFMF) provides fast IRS feedback so users can determine if their file was Accepted or Rejected. The site simplifies the ACA corrections process to help lower potential penalties. See https://www.efilemyforms.com/ACA_Pricing for an overview of ACA services.
PENNY-WISE AND POUND-FOOLISH
Applicable Large Employers (ALE) may express concern about the cost to late file tax forms. eFileMyForms can Print, Mail and eFile prior year ACA filings. Pricing is always volume based; for example, to file 500 Forms 1095-C is $0.87 per record with a $99 annual subscription fee. The IRS penalty for failure to file an information return is $250 per record with a $3,000,000 cap* plus additional penalties for failure to provide employee statements. The cost for a late filing on eFileMyForms is a fraction of the cost of an IRS penalty. Don’t delay, file today!
