IRS Extends ACA Reporting Deadline


The IRS has again extended the deadline for employers subject to the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA’s) information reporting requirements to meet their obligations to employees.  This is generally applicable to employers with 50 or more employees, or the equivalent. Last year, the IRS extended the 2016 deadlines for reporting 2015 information, giving employers an additional two months to provide employees Form 1095-B, “Health Coverage,” and Form 1095-C, “Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage.” The latest extension, however, extends the deadline for reporting 2016 information only 30 days, from January 31, 2017, to March 2, 2017.  And, unlike the last extension, this one doesn’t include the deadline for filing the required forms with the IRS.
