Q.- We didn’t realize we had to file our ACA forms electronically and our paper forms were not accepted by the IRS. Are there penalties for filing late?

A.- Yes. For 2023 returns and statements filed and furnished in 2024, the penalty for not filing electronically is increased to $310 per return, with a maximum penalty of $3,783,000 ($1,261,000 for smaller filers). Correcting failures within 30 days reduces penalties to $60 per return or statement, capped at $630,500 ($220,500 for smaller filers). Corrections made by August 1 result in reduced penalties of $120 per return or statement, not exceeding $1,891,500 ($630,500 for smaller filers). Penalties increase if there's intentional disregard for filing requirements.
