After considering feedback from private sector businesses and insurers, the IRS has extended the deadlines for reporting 2015 information under the Affordable Care Act.
Employers now have until March 31 (previously February 1) to provide employees with their Form 1095-C or Form 1095-B.
Additionally, the deadlines for employers to report offers of health coverage to the IRS (Forms 1094-B, 1094-C, 1095-B, and 1095-C) have been extended by three months: The deadline for paper filing (available only to employers submitting fewer than 250 1095-Cs) is now May 31. The deadline for electronic filing (available to all employers) is now June 30.
Again, the deadline extensions apply only to this year. The IRS will still begin accepting reporting in January.
