Background:
IRS released the final versions of forms and instructions employers will use to complete 6055/6056 reporting under ACA.

Instructions
You need to read in their entirety, while there are lines that can be skipped on 1094-C, it does not appear any lines can be skipped on 1095-C. The forms below are to be used by applicable large employers to satisfy both the Section 6055 and 6056 reporting requirements, as applicable.
