The Internal Revenue Service has released draft versions of 2018 forms for Affordable Care Act (ACA) reporting under IRS Code Sections 6055 and 6056. Specifically, Forms 1094-C and 1095-C are now available in draft versions for reporting under Section 6055 and 6066, as are Forms 1094-B and 1095-B for reporting under Section 6066.
Here’s what you need to know:
- The 2018 draft forms are very similar to the 2017 versions.
- The revised version of Form 1095-C clarifies that the “Plan Start Month” box in Part II will remain optional for 2018. The IRS had previously indicated that this entry might become mandatory.
- Draft instructions to accompany the 2018 forms have not yet been released.
While employers should become familiar with these forms for their reporting for the 2018 calendar year, note that these are draft versions only. These forms should not be used for filing.
