CALABASAS, Calif., Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- https://www.eFileMyForms.com, recently touted as a first-mover into the ACA reporting and 1095 filing arena, has just become one of the select few companies to complete all eight AATS IRS ACA test scenarios, for 2015, and receive an IRS approved Transmitter Control Code (TCC) for the reporting 1094-B, 1095-B, 1094-C, & 1095-C ACA forms. The IRS test scenarios, which are designed to filter out companies with insufficient technical knowledge, have mired many companies in years of development with no tangible results for their efforts. eFileMyForms now stands apart from these companies as one of the elite few to pass all tests and become an IRS approved ACA transmitter to the AIR system. Already known as an industry leader for filing over 10% of the information returns (1099, W-2, & 1042-S) in the US, eFileMyForms is now poised to extend its core competencies with a complete ACA 1095 reporting service capable of importing data from Excel, printing & mailing to recipients, XML filing with the IRS, and processing corrections when needed.
For those who are not familiar with the process, the IRS has instituted a multi-tier process to certify vendors as approved transmitters via the IRS ACA Information Returns (AIR) System. The process entails everything from creating IRS e-Service accounts, applying for test TCC's, obtaining digital certificates, and completing eight different test scenarios. Throughout this process, many would-be vendors have been forced to step-down as the technical requirements and the difficulty of the testing scenarios have proven more challenging than first anticipated.
Even more impressive, eFileMyForms is already live with its ACA 1095 filing service which simplifies the user experience into three easy steps – captured here in a short ACA Reporting Video Tutorial.
In the first step of the process, users have the option to import their ACA 1095 data from an Excel spreadsheet so that it auto-populates on the 1095-B or 1095-C forms.
"The Excel templates make the importing process particularly easy to use," says Director of Marketing, Michael Stewart.
"Customers are able download eFileMyForms' sample Excel templates and the process will automatically populate the 1095-B & 1095-C records – taking seconds to do what would normally take hours or days."
Conversely, if users only have small volume of records, the data can be keyed in directly onto the tax form.
Following import, submission to the IRS ACA site is just around the corner. Users are prompted to complete the 1094-B / 1094-C transmittal forms and to select from the available printing, mailing, and electronic XML filing options. The IRS deadlines of February 1st, 2016 for printing and mailing and March 31st, 2016 for electronically filing are identical for ACA reporting. eFileMyForms allows submissions for each deadline up to midnight of the preceding day.
