How To Meet Affordable Care Act Requirements As A Nonprofit

Did you know that nonprofit organizations are affected by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) just like all other employers in the U.S.? 

In fact, nonprofits are required to file appropriate ACA tax forms annually, especially if they have 50 or more full-time equivalent employees. 

Originally due on January 31, insurers, self-insuring employers, large employers, including nonprofit and tax exempt organizations, and other coverage providers now have until this Friday, March 2, 2018 to provide ACA health coverage information to individuals they cover. 

This automatic 30-day extension provides insurers and employers extra time to furnish required Form 1095-B or Form 1095-C statements to employees or covered individuals.

Statements provided to these individuals are used to determine whether they will claim the premium tax credit on their tax returns, so it’s extremely important that you have them filed and distributed on time.
