ACA Reporting Penalties You Want to Avoid

If you fail to file your 1094 and 1095 Forms by your extended deadline you could be facing hefty IRS penalties. All Applicable Large Employers and Third Party Administrators who filed Form 8809 are required to file ACA Form 1095 and 1094 by the extended ACA filing deadline.

Failure to E-file

If your business paper files 250 or more forms, you are required to e-file. If you fail to do so, then you will incur a $260 per form penalty.

Failure to Meet 95%

If you do not offer coverage to a minimum of 95% of full-time employees, your business will face a fine of $2,260 ($188.33 per month) per full-time employee.
