IRS Extends Due Date for ACA Reporting Forms 1095-B and 1095-C for 2016

Yeo & Yeo CPAs & Business Consultants

The IRS has provided a 30-day extension of the due date for Affordable Care Act (ACA) information that must be reported to covered individuals and employees, from January 31, 2017, to March 2, 2017. This includes IRS Forms 1095-B (Health Coverage) and 1095-C (Employer-provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage). This extension has been automatically granted, and no further extension of time to provide the Forms to covered individuals and employees will be available.

This extension does not impact the due dates for furnishing the information to the IRS, which remain February 28, 2017, if not filing electronically and March 31, 2017, if filing electronically. Because these reporting due dates were not changed, the normal rules for requesting an extension of time to file information returns, i.e., filing Form 8809, apply.
