What’s New With Us?

Getting right to it–we’re excited to introduce a new product in our software family: ExpressACAForms. We’re taking all the guesswork out of a big part of the Affordable Care Act (or ObamaCare) for you. Under the ACA, if you have employees working for you, regardless of the size of your business, you have to give the IRS proof that you’ve provided those employees with what’s called the minimum essential coverage. (MEC) of health insurance.

This means that any trucking business owner that has at least one employee must show that they’ve provided this MEC to all employees. That’s why we made a solution to help all of you out!

What is ExpressACAForms?

Through ExpressACAForms.com, you can e-file the information returns necessary to prove that you’ve provided your employees with the minimum essential coverage. Like all of our e-filing solutions, we’re secure, IRS-authorized, and affordable! (In fact, you can prepare your 2014 filing for free!)

What Forms are Used?

The forms that are used to report this information are the 1094-B and 1094-C, and the 1095-B and 1095-C. ExpressACAForms gives you access to all these forms and a way to file them. (At this point, however, the IRS is not receiving these forms yet, so the filing portion of ExpressACAForms is not operable, but will be soon.)

How Do I Fill Out These Forms?

With ExpressACAForms, filling out these forms is quick and easy. We’ve taken the difficulty out of tax filing. Just fill out a few simple fields, and that’s it. You’ll have all your information ready to go when the IRS does start accepting 1094’s and 1095’s, which should be very soon. And ExpressACAForms automatically checks for any errors in your forms, so there’s no need to worry about making any mistakes.

How Do I File These Forms?

You’ll be able to e-file these forms for free for the 2014 tax year when the IRS begins accepting them. In addition, you’ll also have the option of us delivering your forms by postal mail, if that’s your preference.

When are These Forms Due?

There are deadlines for filing Forms 1094-B & C and 1095-B & C for the 2014 tax year.

  • January 31, 2016: All recipients must have been provided with forms 1095-B & C 
  • February 29, 2016: Paper filing of Forms 1094-B & C and 1095-B & C to the IRS
