Section 6056 Employer Reporting Guide

Want to take care of compliance yourself, but not sure where to start? We have a guide that covers everything from who must report to how to file with the IRS. This easy to use, step-by-step guide makes Section 6056 reporting simple. Compliance topics covered in this guide are:

  • Applicable large employers reporting responsibilities under Section 6056
  • Forms that are needed to complete Section 6056 reporting
  • Information that a large employer must provide to full-time employees and to the IRS regarding the health care coverage it offered (or did not offer) to full-time employees
  • Deadlines for filing information with the IRS and providing information to full-time employees and how this should be completed
  • Penalties for failing to satisfy Section 6056 reporting requirements

Under Section 6056, you must provide information on health insurance coverage using the 1094-C and the 1095-C. Each of these forms outlines the coverage an employee has obtained through the group health insurance plan offered by an organization for the year. Each employee must receive a 1095-C (pictured below), and the IRS must receive a 1094-C and a separate employee statement (Form 1095-C) for each full time employee.
