If you have copies of 250 or more 1095-Cs to submit, you must electronically file your 1094-C (transmittal of the 1095-Cs) with the IRS. If you have 249 and fewer 1095-C forms to submit, e-filing is optional but recommended.
Our ACA Compliance Solution will generate the required XML file for you – we were the first software vendor to earn e-filing approval in the new IRS system for ACA returns – but you will have to submit it.
To electronically file, you will need a TCC (Transmitter Control Code) for the IRS’s new, ACA-specific e-filing system. This is not the transmitter code you use for e-filing W-2s, which go to a system called FIRE. T
