Any day we expect this filing requirement for Health Insurance to go away but until it does our program is the easiest way to meet your obligation.
1095 Express supports paperless e-filing by generating the required XML files from your data saved in the program. These files can be uploaded to the AIR site with your own AIR TCC. No need to worry about security as you maintain control of your data throughout the entire process.
You can print all your forms on to plain paper directly from the program. No need for special forms or envelopes. These can be mailed directly to your recipients. The 1095-B forms are no longer required to be mailed out to recipients, but the 1095-C forms are required to be mailed out by Jan 31st. This date has gotten extended until March 2 in the past but that is always subject to change.
Sample Excel spreadsheets are available in the program by going to File -> Open Sample Excel Spreadsheet (third option from the bottom).
Importing data is as easy as Copy and Paste from Excel by Header Name. You can do this by going to 'Edit' -> 'Paste from Excel by Header Name' (fourth from the top) or by right clicking on the grid and selecting 'Paste from Excel by Header Name' from the dropdown list.
You can print all your forms on to plain paper directly from the program. No need for special forms or envelopes. These can be mailed directly to your recipients.
However, printing, folding, and stuffing hundreds of envelopes is no small task. We can print, mail and e-File all of that for you for a very reasonable cost. Our cost to eFIle is $75 and we interact with the AIR team to make sure your file is accepted. If there is any status returned other than accepted, we will notify you and send you a list of errors. We can also help in creating the correction file. We would love to help you with this very difficult and time-consuming task!
e-Filing to the IRS AIR is available from the program as long as you have your own AIR TCC.
If you are uncomfortable with the e-Filing process, we can do it for you for a fee. The cost to e-File is $75 for up to 10,000 forms. We will interact with the AIR team to get your files e-Filed and get an ACCEPTED status for you. If the file is ACCEPTED with ERRORS we will work with you to get those errors corrected and e-Filed again for a fee.
