Who is filing your 2021 ACA Reporting?

If you are an Applicable Large Employer (ALE)*, your business could be in jeopardy of facing significant financial IRS assessments if you have not reviewed and acknowledged your Affordable Care Act (ACA) forms for the 2021 reporting year. If you do not take action to review and acknowledge your filing in the ACA Reporting Tool (ART), your Forms 1095-C may not be distributed to your full-time employees prior to the IRS deadline. As a result, your business may be subject to IRS assessments. Your ACA filing must be approved by January 20, 2022, or your company may face IRS assessments for failure to furnish the filing on time.

Submitting your 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 reports has changed, here’s what you need to know.

Over the past several years, we have enjoyed being able to support your EEO-1 Component 1 report filing. As of 2022, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has requested that PEOs have clients submit individual 2021 EEO-1 Component 1 reports themselves and each year after.  Thus, as a PEO, we will no longer be filing an aggregate EEO-1 Component 1 Report on your behalf to the EEOC.  ADP TotalSource will provide support, tools and assist with regulatory standards to ensure you can successfully generate, upload, and certify the EEO-1 report moving forward.
