Need More Time to E-File Your Employee’s 1094 and 1095 Form?

Today is the last day to file your Affordable Care Act Forms with the IRS. All Applicable Large Employers and Third Party Administrators must e-file their ACA information returns with the IRS by midnight tonight to remain compliant and escape penalties.


Today is the Last Day to File Your ACA Forms

While ACAwise is a full-service ACA filing solution we can only do so much and with the time left. We cannot guarantee that your information will be processed in time. If you have yet to start the e-filing process, we recommend you file tax extension Form 8809.

All Applicable Large Employers and Third Party Administrators are still required to file ACA Form 1095 by the ACA filing deadline. If you file after the deadline without an extension, this is what to expect.


Affordable Care Act Penalties 2018
While the American Health Care Act (AHCA) or Trumpcare is yet to pass through the legislature, the 2018 Obamacare penalty is still fully enforced. All Applicable Large Employer and Third Party Administrators are still required to file ACA Form 1095 by the ACA filing deadline.
