IRS Announces Employer Affordable Care Act (ACA) Reporting Relief

The original deadline of Jan. 31, 2016, has been extended to March 31, 2016, for providing the ACA- required 1095-C form that proves an employer has offered coverage to an eligible employee or that an employee is covered under the employer’s self-insured plan. As a result, DHRM will delay the mailing of these forms to health plan participants until March 1, 2016. For those waiting for the 1095-C, this new date may be later than one would prefer to file their individual 2015 income tax returns. According to the IRS, while the information on this form may assist in preparing a return, it is NOT required. Individual taxpayers will generally not be affected by this extension and should file their returns as they normally would.

For more details, visit the IRS website. https://www.irs.gov/Affordable-Care-Act/Questions-and-Answers-about-Health-Care-Information-Forms-for-Individuals
