ACA state filing deadlines

January is not just about ringing in the New Year; it’s also a month filled with tax-related deadlines, including the well-known Forms 1099 and W-2 due on January 31st. However, there’s another set of deadlines that employers and service providers in certain states, like Massachusetts and California, need to be aware of – Affordable Care Act (ACA) reporting.

Understanding State-Level ACA Reporting:

The Affordable Care Act initially imposed a federal mandate requiring individuals and their dependents to maintain health insurance coverage. While this mandate was eliminated, states like Massachusetts and California took matters into their own hands, enacting their own mandates. Some states align with federal deadlines for ACA reporting, while others set separate ones.

Critical Deadlines for Massachusetts and California:

Residents of Massachusetts are required to file Form 1099-HC, known as the Individual Mandate Massachusetts Health Care Coverage, by January 31, 2024. In California, employers and providers must submit either ACA Form 1095-B or Form 1095-C, with the deadline for distributing recipient copies also set for January 31, 2024.
