As a reminder, the due dates for IRS reporting under the ACA are as follows: Forms 1095-B and 1095-C must be furnished to individuals no later than March 31, 2016. Filing the 2015 Forms 1094-B, 1095-B, 1094-C and 1095-C with the IRS must be completed no later than May 31, 2016, if not filing electronically, and June 30, 2016, if filing electronically.
For 2016 there will be no further extensions of these due dates. The 30-day extension to furnish these reports that may be granted in a “normal” year will not be granted this year, as the extensions that the IRS previously granted are more generous.
For help in finalizing any of your reports before the due date, you may refer to our Compliance Bulletin on the reporting deadlines,1095-C Flowchart and Section 6056 Employer Reporting Guide. Contact your Higginbotham representative if you need assistance or have any further questions.
