Some IRS filing errors revolve around the 1094-C.  This KB is designed to preemptively direct you away from these errors by carefully examining the following 2 pages in the Maintenance section of the ACA solution BEFORE pushing the Send button!

  1. 1094-C Prerequisites
  2. Edit 1094-C Information

Step 1 – A CORRECT PREREQUISITE SETUP IS THE BEGINNING STEP FOR A SUCCESSFUL E-FILE TO THE IRS.

  • This illustration shows us a correct setup for a multiple EIN company Prerequisite. If you are single EIN company, you will check NO on the second circle. if you make changes be sure to click SAVE at the bottom.

 

  • Go to 1095-C in the Maintenance section:  Before going to Step 2, you will need to look up the total number of 1095-C’s you want to send to the IRS found at the bottom right corner of the 1095-C page in Maintenance.  You will need this number per company before you go to Step 2.

 

Step 2 – VERIFYING THE ACCURACY OF THE 1094-C IS A MUST FOR A SUCCESSFUL E-FILE TO THE IRS

  • Open the Edit 1094-C window and carefully look at each part of PART I, II, III and IV.  Make sure the number on line 18 and 20 match the number on the 1095-C page.  Line 19 AND 21 should be checked to match your Prerequisite setups.  If line 21 is checked yes then the box on Part III Aggregated Group should be checked.  This allows Part IV to properly fill in the other EIN companies that are in the Group. Check each of your companies in this window.
