Answers
What causes error 1095B-010-01, 1095C-010-01, Shared-008?
Each of these errors indicates a specific Name/TIN validation error. More specifically,

  • Error 1095B-010 indicates that the Name/TIN combination for a Responsible Individual did not match IRS records.
  • Error 1095C-010 indicates that the Name/TIN combination for an Employee did not match IRS records.
  • A Shared-008 error indicates that the Name/TIN combination for a Covered Individual did not match IRS records.

  • Pursuant to IRS, a Name/TIN combination mismatch can happen for a variety of reasons:

  • The social security number reported is incorrect;
  • The last name reported is misspelled;
  • A maiden name is reported when the married name is registered with SSA;
  • A married name is reported when the maiden name is registered with SSA;
  • Hispanics may sometimes have two last names (Check out this article by AMERICOLLECT).
  • I received a Shared-008 error. How do I find the Covered Individual?
    Although the IRS Acknowledgement does not identify the Covered Individual by name, it does provide a useful reference pointer to the Covered Individual, as listed on the 1095 containing the Covered Individual. The reference pointer is located in the brackets [] following the CoveredIndividualGrp, i.e.

    CoveredIndividualGrp[reference pointer]

    Since Account Ability's XREF file identifies the Employee (Responsible Individual) belonging to the 1095, you need only locate the 1095 and refer to the referenced Covered Individual.

    Example: The second Covered Individual is referenced in the following Shared-008 error,

    /Form109495TransmittalUpstream/Form1094UpstreamDetail/Form1095UpstreamDetail/CoveredIndividualGrp[2]SSN
    IRS has informed me that I only need to correct Form 1094-C. How do I do this?

  • From the File menu of Form 1095-C, select Transmittal 1094-C Options
  • This will display Parts I, II, III and IV of Form 1094-C
  • Make the necessary changes to each part
  • Check the CORRECTED box on Part I
  • Make sure the Authoritative Transmittal box is checked at the bottom of Part I
  • ALE Groups - Only the Authoritative Transmittal should be corrected
  • The Total number of Forms 1095-C submitted... should show zero (-0-)
  • Click OK
  • From the File menu, select Electronic Reporting
  • When the Form 1094-C options are displayed, verify your changes and click OK
  • Select the RECEIPT ID of the transmittal to be corrected from the drop down list
  • Click OK
  • Your electronic transmittal will be created and ready for manifesting
  • Now proceed as usual to manifest and upload to IRS AIR
  • From the File menu of Form 1095-C, select Transmittal 1094-C Options
  • Uncheck the CORRECTED box on Part I
  • Click OK

  • Check your results with IRS AIR in 24 hours.
    How do I correct error AIRSH100 - XML Schema Validation Failed?
    Schema Validation Errors, AIRSH100, can be extremely hard to locate, especially in large transmittal files. If you received an AIRSH100 error from IRS AIR, contact an Account Ability ACA support technician at 1-888-IDMSINC (436-7462). We have a suite of ACA tools that can locate the source of the error, and its solution, in seconds. Once this error has been corrected, you will be shown how to create and manifest a REPLACEMENT transmittal.
    How can I check to see if my TCC has been moved into production?
    You need to logon to your e-Services Account.

    Click on the link:
    https://www.irs.gov/for-Tax-Pros

    Click: Access e-Services
    Click: Login or Register
    Click: (ACA) your company name...
    Click: Application
    Click: ACA Application for TCC

    In the Processed Applications section, click on the View Summary Page actions button ()

    You will find the status of your Transmitter Control Code in the TCC Information section:

    T = TEST

    ACA Forms 1094, 1095 Electronic Filing Instructions
    Why am I getting the error "Self-Insured coverage conflict" when trying to create my 1095-C transmittal?
    IRS business rules require that you check the box Employer provided self-insured coverage if, and only if, there is at least one covered individual. If the employee and all of his/her dependents opted out of the self-insured plan then you must uncheck the Employer provided self-insured coverage box.

    Consequently, a "Self-insured coverage conflict" error will occur if either,

  • The employee and his/her dependents opted out, but the Employer provided self-insured coverage box is checked, or
  • The employee and his/her dependents opted in, but the Employer provided self-insured coverage box is not checked.

  • FYI: The 1095-C in error will be displayed when Account Ability stops on this error.
    TIP: Adjust Self-Insured Indicators on the Tools menu of Form 1095-C will correct this error on all 1095-C forms.
    Can I use my IRS FIRE TCC to file Forms 1094, 1095?
    No. Your IRS FIRE TCC can only be used to file information returns 1098, 1099, 3921, 3922, 5498, and W-2G with the IRS FIRE System. An IRS AIR TCC is required to file information returns 1094-B, 1095-B, 1094-C and/or 1095-C. See the Account Ability Help menu for instructions on how to apply for an ACA TCC ("Application for ACA TCC Instructions").
    Why did I receive an AIRMF3005 error when uploading my Production files?
    Your TCC is probably still in TEST mode. In order to use the Production System, your TCC must be moved to PRODUCTION. Contact IRS at 866-937-4130 and request that your TCC be moved to Production. Once in Production, try uploading your manifest and form files again.
    Why did I receive a TPE1130 error when uploading my Production files?
    Production files should be uploaded using the AIR UI Channel Login - Production link.
    You probably used the AIR UI Channel Login - AATS (Testing) link.
