Form 1094-C - An Overview
Updated on August 28, 2023 - 10:30 AM by Admin, Tax bandits
In addition to the ACA mandate that employers offer affordable health coverage to their employees, Section 6055 and 6056 of the ACA require Applicable Large Employers (ALEs) to file forms 1094-C and 1095-C with the IRS.
1094-C is the transmittal form that must be filed with the 1095-C form.
Eventually, Forms 1094-C and 1095-C are used by Applicable Large employers to report health coverage information offered by employees to the IRS.

Form 1094-C is the transmittal of Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage Information Returns Form that accompanies Form 1095-C when filing with the IRS each year.
Form 1094-C summarizes the 1095-C information returns. Form 1094-C is only sent to the IRS, not to employees.

Last year (i.e, tax year 2020) IRS released a notice 2020-76 stating that the employee copies distribution deadline is extended from January 31st to March 02nd. Also for tax year 2023, there is an extension in the deadline for furnishing employee copies.
