Q: Does the ACA Management Tool® submit the forms directly to the IRS on behalf of the employer?
A: Yes. Subscribers to the ACA Management Tool® electronically file their 1094/1095 C (or B) forms to the IRS via ACA GPS’s TCC number. Employers do NOT need to apply for their own TCC number with the IRS. There is no need for the subscriber to conduct IRS testing or attempt to create an XML file.
Q: Where can I find instructions on electronically filing the forms to the IRS?
A: Instructions for electronically filing the forms to the IRS are available through these links: 2017 Instructions for Forms 1094-C and 1095-C or 2017 Instructions for Forms 1094-B and 1095-B. However, if you decide to subscribe to the ACA Management Tool, you do NOT need to apply for a TCC number with the IRS. There is no need for you to conduct IRS testing or attempt to create an XML file. ACA GPS is authorized to transmit all 1094/1095 B and C submissions to the IRS for private businesses, government entities and insurance companies. For Tax Years 2015 and 2016, 100% of ACA Management Tool® subscribers met the deadlines for distribution of the 1095 forms and electronic filing of the 1094/1095 forms with the IRS. Additionally, those subscribers that received “TIN/SSN Validation Error” messages were able to correct and resubmit to the IRS in a timely manner, at no additional cost to the employer.
