IRS ISSUES NEW Q&AS ON SECTION 6056 REPORTING
On May 20, 2015, the IRS released new Questions and Answers (Q&As) on Section 6056 reporting using Form 1094-C and Form 1095-C. These Q&As supplement a separate set of Q&As on Section 6056 reporting that were issued on Aug. 29, 2014, which were updated at the same time the new Q&As were released.

For example, the Q&As address specific issues related to:
Reporting Offers of Coverage and Other Enrollment Information
