Yesterday, the IRS announced it will delay the deadlines of the 1094 and 1095 form submissions.
· The deadline to provide employees with 1095-C Forms has been extended to March 31, 2016.
· The deadline to file paper 1094-C and 1095-C forms with the IRS has been extended to May 31, 2016.
· The deadline to e-File electronic 1094-C and 1095-C forms has been extended to June 30, 2016.
Because of the delay, no other extensions will be granted to employers. Within the notice of delay, the IRS requests that employers submit the forms to employees as soon as they are ready, and advised employees that they do not need to provide the forms with their 2015 tax filing as proof of coverage. Employees who received premium subsidies from the exchange may need to amend their returns once they receive the form.
