As the federal mandate matures, more and more states are stepping up to create their own flavor of the ACA marketplace with their own reporting requirements. In line with this, New Jersey has announced that state filing is now required for ACA forms for Tax Year 2019.
Do I need to e-file my ACA forms with New Jersey?
If you are employer of a New Jersey resident, or if you provide Minimum Essential Coverage to a New Jersey resident, you must e-file your ACA data via the MFT SecureTransport channel used for uploading state W-2 data.
What about out of state filers?
Out-of-State employers who employ New Jersey residents have the same filing requirements as in-State businesses. These requirements are not limited to businesses that withhold New Jersey payroll taxes. If you are an out-of-State employer, you must ensure that we receive any required 1095 document for each New Jersey resident you employ. Insurers, government agencies, multiemployer plans, and all others responsible for reporting Minimum Essential Coverage to New Jersey residents also must file the required information with the State.
What is the deadline to e-file state ACA forms in New Jersey?
For tax year 2019, the deadline to e-file your New Jersey ACA forms is March 31, 2020.
