In a previous post, we mentioned that starting in January 2016, all large employers will need to file a new form with the IRS, the 1095-C. A copy of the form will also need to be provided to each employee.
Think of the 1095-C as the “W-2 for health insurance”.
The IRS has released a draft of the new form, which you can see here. Instructions have not been released for the form yet, but the indicator codes that will be used for the monthly status boxes 14 and 16 are included.
This is a draft form, so while the final form may look a little different, this gives us a basic outline of the information that will be required. Keep in mind that although the form will not be printed until January 2016, we recommend that you record the information necessary to complete the form throughout the year.
Datatech’s Human Resource Management software will automate recording the necessary information, print the 1095-C form and create an equivalent electronic file for reporting more than 250 employees (this is the same employee limit for reporting W-2 information electronically rather than on paper).
