According to the ACA reporting requirements section 6055 & 6056, employers must file annual information returns with the IRS and furnish statements to their employees on healthcare plan coverage information before the deadline.

Most often, the IRS encourages employers to file electronically. By E-filing the form 1095-C with the IRS, the IRS can process your returns at a faster rate, you can also check the status of your submission instantly. 

Paper filing Deadline

If you choose to paper file (less than 250 forms) your 1094 and 1095-B/C with the IRS, February 28, 2021, is the deadline to submit your 2020 tax year information returns. 

Penalties

If you fail to file ACA Forms or furnish employee copies on time, the IRS issues penalty letters 5699, 5005-A, and 972CG with proposed penalties under sections 6721 and 6722 to the ALEs.
