What is it?
In December 2017, Congress repealed the federal financial penalties for individuals not having health insurance. Since then, some states have turned to state individual mandates in order to keep their healthcare marketplaces stable. As new state individual mandates are enacted, the level of compliance and complexity for employers increases.
If an employer with 50+ employees has even a single employee filing taxes in one of these states, that employer must comply with the state’s individual mandate by submitting Forms 1094-C and 1095-C. Each state defines reportable employees differently and has different file formats with different IT infrastructure and due dates.

Reporting Solution Deadlines & Pricing
With deadlines approaching for the 2020 tax reporting year, we've automatically opted in employers who have employees in states with state-specific ACA reporting requirements to help you avoid penalties. You'll still need to approve your forms under Data & Tools > ACA State Transmission before the deadlines – otherwise, we can't submit for you.
