Getting Started with ACA Reporting

Ready to get started on filing your ACA reporting with BoomTax? This guide will give you a quick overview of how to upload and submit your Affordable Care Act data to the IRS.

First, you’ll select how you want to enter your data:

If you use a software such as UltiPro or PeopleSoft that generates an XML file for your ACA data, select: “Import data from UltiPro, PeopleSoft, Deltek and other systems.”

From there, you’ll simply upload your XML file to our server. Common XML errors will automatically be fixed and your data will be run against over 500 IRS rules to ensure it is ready to e-file.

If you do not have an XML file to upload, select: “Import Data with Excel or Enter Manually.”

After a quick introduction to our import wizard and a checklist of related topics that may help you with your filing, simply follow the prompts to enter your company and employee data.

Once you have reviewed and verified your company data, you will be able to choose how you want to enter employee data. We recommend importing with our Excel spreadsheet sample file.

Or, if you would prefer, you could manually enter the data for each employee at a time.

Once you have uploaded or entered your employee data, you can verify your entries on our review page. If you need to add, delete, or modify employees, you can do so from here. To modify an employee, simply click on their name.

Once you’re satisfied with your data, you can elect to order our Print & Mail service, wherein we distribute your employee copies for you, or you can download a PDF of your filing to print and distribute on your own.

When you’re ready to submit your filing to the IRS, simply click the orange IRS e-file button and your filing will be submitted directly. We’ll keep you updated with real-time e-mail notifications as your filing is processed.
