» New Jersey Updates Information on Health Care Reporting Requirement
May 13, 2019
Employers Will File Forms 1094 and 1095 through State W-2 Filing System in 2020
New Jersey recently updated its website information on employer health coverage reporting. As part of the state’s individual health insurance mandate, starting with tax year 2019, employers must provide New Jersey taxpayers and the state with the same 1094 and 1095 health care coverage information they sent the IRS in tax year 2018, using federal Forms 1094 and 1095 B and C, as appropriate (unless those forms are discontinued).
Employers will file the forms electronically through New Jersey’s system for filing W-2 forms by February 15, 2020. Further instructions will be posted mid-year on the state’s website. The reporting requirement also applies to out-of-state employers that withhold and remit New Jersey income tax for New Jersey residents.
