New Jersey 1095 Filings
New Jersey has passed the Health Insurance Market Preservation Act, which imposes an individual mandate requiring New Jersey residents to purchase healthcare coverage and report that to the state. In addition, employers must report and verify coverage that was offered to New Jersey residents. This means that applicable large employers (ALEs), defined the same as the in the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and all other providers of Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) to New Jersey residents must send health-care coverage returns to the State for the 2019 Tax Year. New Jersey has clarified that employers will use the federal 1094 and 1095 B and C series forms to complete this filing requirement. Filing will be done on the State level through the same filing system employers use to file W-2 forms. SyncStream Solutions has been approved as a third party vendor to complete these filings on behalf of employers.
