Applicable Large Employers or ALEs (with 50 or more full-time and full-time equivalent employees) are required to file information with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to demonstrate what benefits the employer offered to its employees the previous calendar year. Termed as 1094/1095, these forms will be used by IRS to determine whether an employer will be penalized for noncompliance and also determine employees’ eligibility for the premium tax credit.
Some employers have been receiving IRS Letter 5699, which the IRS uses to inquire about an employer’s reason for not filing the Forms 1094-C and 1095-C with the IRS in previous years. The letter primarily contains information such as the date the letter was sent, taxpayer ID number, tax year(s) in question, IRS contact details, employee ID number, reasons why you have received this letter and explanation of the relevant rules. If you have received such a letter from the IRS, you need to act immediately.
An employer is usually required to respond to IRS Letter 5699 within 30 days. Failure to do so implies risking significant penalty charges that may run into millions. If you wait until just before the response deadline, it could be difficult to gather all the data and complete the forms in time.
If you have indeed missed out filing past year’s 1094/1095 forms, you will be required to do so immediately. Though it seems simple, gathering employee data in a short time can be a cumbersome and error prone exercise. The regulations are complex to interpret and dynamic. Employers need to have a deep understanding of these regulations and the right strategy in place for successful compliance.
