Employer Reporting – 2016 Draft Forms and Instructions

The IRS has released the 2016 draft forms and instructions for the ACA employer reporting requirement.  The 2016 draft forms are very similar to the 2015 forms with only a few small changes; the most significant ones explain how to indicate §4980H transition relief for non-calendar year plans on Form 1094-C and coding conditional offers of coverage to spouses on Line 14 of Form 1095-C. The 2016 draft instructions are also similar, but now contain additional language and examples in many of the sections that incorporate clarification of existing requirements, including much of the guidance previously provided only via FAQ and other informal IRS guidance.
