IRS Extends Form 1095-C Deadline for 2018 ACA Reporting

ACA icon2 min read

The IRS extended the deadlines for furnishing ACA Forms 1095-B and 1095-C to employees. The forms were previously due on Wednesday, January 31, 2018. The automatic extension gives employers an extra 30 days to give employees their 1095-C forms, now due on Friday, March 2, 2018. 

There are a few things to note about this extension:

  • This is an automatic extension that applies to everyone. No application is necessary.
  • No other extensions will be available for Form 1095-C (you will not be able to file Form 8809 for an additional extension).
  • Due to the extension, employees may not receive their Form 1095-C by the time they file their individual tax returns. While the information on this form may be helpful for preparing a tax return, it is not required to file.
  • The IRS still encourages employers to furnish Form 1095-C to their employees as soon as possible.

Please, note that the Form 1094-C deadline remains the same. For more information, visit our ACA reporting forms FAQs.
