The IRS has announced it is extending the 2016 due dates for ACA information reporting. While the deadlines have changed, the requirements are still the same and covered businesses are still obligated to file.
Specifically, businesses now have until:
- March 31, 2016 to supply employees with the 2015 Form 1095-B and Form 1095-C. The previous date was January 31.
- May 31, 2016 to file forms 1095-B and 1095-C with the IRS if submitting paper forms. The previous date was February 29.
- June 30, 2016 to submit forms 1095-B and 1095-C to the IRS if filing electronically. The previous date was March 31.
These new dates give businesses more time to collect the necessary data and report it to the IRS. For more information, visit https://www.irs.gov/Affordable-Care-Act.
