The IRS recently released new drafts of the ACA Forms 1095-B and 1095-C for the upcoming tax year. Businesses that are required to complete ACA reporting must use these forms in 2023, once they have been finalized by the IRS.
The forms are generally finalized closer to the ACA deadline, however, the draft is a good indicator of what filers can expect the final form to look like.
Interested in learning more about the new ACA form drafts? Wondering how soon you should begin planning to meet your ACA reporting requirements? Keep reading, we’re covering all of this information and more!
What do the 1095-B/C Drafts look like?
Great news! The drafts of Form 1095-B and Form 1095-C look the same as the existing forms. This means the IRS doesn’t plan on adding any notable updates or revisions to these forms. If your business filed these forms successfully for the 2021 tax year, there aren’t any changes to adjust to.
