On December 28, the IRS issued a notice that extends the 2015 due dates for information that insurers and self-insured employers are required to report to comply with the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Specifically, the notice provided the following extensions:
- The due date for providing the 2015 forms 1095-B and 1095-C to full-time employees has been extended from January 31, 2016, until March 31, 2016.
- The due date for filing the 2015 forms 1094-B, 1095-B, 1094-C, and 1095-C with the IRS has been extended from February 29, 2016, to May 31, 2016 if not filing electronically, and from March 31, 2016, to June 30, 2016 if filing electronically.
Although the extensions are helpful, we recommend gathering the required information as soon as possible to ensure that your organization comfortably meets these deadlines.
