The Importance of Keeping Your Beneficiary Information Up-to-DateMay 2, 2017
The IRS is sending out request letters to certain applicable large employers (ALEs) in regards to reporting information required under the Internal Revenue Code section 6055-6056 (offers of health coverage to employees and enrollment in health coverage for their employees – Forms 1094-C and 1095-C).
The letter tells employers that (1.) the IRS believes them to have been an ALE for 2015 and (2.) the IRS did not receive Forms 1094-C and 1095-C for this year.
Employers that receive this IRS request must do one of the following within 30 days:
- Attest it was an ALE for 2015 and the required forms were filed. They must provide the IRS with the date the forms were filed and the employer identification number used.
- Attest it was an ALE for 2015 but did not file. These employers must provide the IRS with completed Forms 1094-C and 1095-C.
- Attest it was an ALE for 2015, now needs to file and it will file Forms 1094-C and 1095-C by a specified date.
- Attest it was not an ALE for 2015.
