Affordable Care Act Information Returns Available Now

FAYETTEVILLE, AR, and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - October 21, 2015) - Tax1099.com, powered by Tech Atlantis, Inc., announced the availability of Affordable Care Act (ACA) forms today. The new forms 1095-B and 1095-C allow clients to meet reporting requirements under the ACA.

"We generally release our new form versions in early November," said Ed Pratt, Vice President of Business Development for Tech Atlantis. "This year we decided to release the ACA forms a little earlier due to the newness of the forms. We want our customers to have extra time to review the form layouts and import templates and contact us with any questions they may have."

The 2015 tax filing season is the first that includes the new ACA forms. Many companies are aware of the need to file those forms but may not know which form to use.

Insurers, including self-insured companies, file 1095-B to show employees had "minimum essential coverage." Applicable Large Employers (ALEs), which includes any employer with 50 or more full-time equivalent employees, file form 1095-C to show coverage offered to each employee by month.

"The programmers have been hard at work to meet the more aggressive time frame," said Pratt. "They've done a great job of meeting the deadlines we set so our customers have a positive experience E-filing the 1095 forms with us this year."

Pratt also said that Tax1099.com will charge the same amount for the new ACA forms as they do for 1099, 1098, and W-2 forms.
