Deadlines to Furnish Forms 1095-C and 1095-B to Employees are Coming Up
This from OMA Connections Partner One Source Advisors (OSA): “The IRS deadlines to furnish Forms 1095-C and 1095-B to employees in early 2019 are as follows:
Employers with 50 or more full-time employees (including full-time equivalent employees) generally must furnish a Form 1095-C to all full-time employees no later than March 4, 2019.
Self-insured employers with fewer than 50 or more full-time employees (including full-time equivalent employees) generally must furnish a Form 1095-B to all responsible individuals–typically the primary insured, an employee or former employee, or other related person named on the application for insurance–no later than March 4, 2019.
The deadline for employers to file all Forms 1095-C and 1095-B with the IRS remains February 28, 2019 (or April 1, 2019, if filing electronically).
Cheri Gillfillan, president of OSA, said: “The forms are to document the employee was offered minimum essential benefits that meet affordability guidelines. The IRS then uses the forms to confirm eligibility for subsidy payments if an employee chooses to be insured through the federal marketplace.”
