The NFP Benefits Compliance team has recently updated two sets of white papers. The first is the employer reporting series, which includes white papers that address employer reporting under the ACA (IRC Section 6055 and 6056 reporting). The white papers in the reporting series have been updated to reflect 2018 due dates (for reporting on 2017 compliance) relating to filing related forms (Forms 1094/95-B and 1094/95-C) with the IRS and distributing Forms 1095-C (or a substitute statement) to employees. The series’ white papers also include links to 2017 forms and have been updated to reflect other minor changes to the reporting requirements. The series includes white papers on general reporting requirements, information for employers, FAQs on codes for Form 1095-C, a flowchart, a summary of reporting obligations and pieces specifically designed as employee handouts (information explaining the purposes of Forms 1095-B and C).
The second set of white papers is the New York (NY) Paid Family Leave (PFL) white paper series, which includes one white paper on general obligations for employers and one on employee communications. Both have been updated to reflect additional guidance published by state regulatory agencies in NY, including new and updated links for downloadable forms for administering PFL leaves (employee request forms and other employer forms) and updating employee handbook language relating to NY PFL.
Please contact your advisor for a copy of any of the updated white papers.
