1094-C and 1095-C to provide information to the IRS and plan
participants regarding their health care benefits for the
Both the forms and their instructions are now available for

Keep in mind that ALEs are employers with 50 or more
full-time employees or the equivalent. And even ALEs
exempt from the ACA's shared-responsibility (or “play or pay”)
provision for 2015 (that is, ALEs with 50 to 99 full-timers or
the equivalent who meet certain eligibility requirements) are
still subject to the information reporting requirements in
relation to their 2015 health care benefits.
If your company is considered an ALE, please contact us at
925-634-2344 for assistance in navigating the ACA's complex

If you're not an ALE, we can still help you understand how the
ACA affects your small business and determine whether you
qualify for a tax credit for providing coverage.
