The IRS has recently extended the deadline for providers of minimum essential coverage (MEC) to furnish ACA tax forms 1095-C and 1095-B to eligible individuals by March 2, 2022 for the tax year of 2021. The proposed regulation is to offer an extension to all ALE’s (applicable large employer) to furnish statements relating to health insurance that the employer offers to its full-time employees. If the due date falls on a weekend or legal holiday, then the due date is the following business day. No additional extension will be granted for these forms.
Deadlines vary depending on form and type, so we have compiled a list to make the Tax Year 2019 Deadlines as simple as possible. Keep these dates in mind as you prepare your forms for filing!
*Individual state filing deadlines for certain information returns may vary. Please verify with your state for the proper method for submissions. BoomTax supports Combined Federal/State Filing for participating states.
Important Note: The IRS announced an ACA deadline extension for distributing forms to employees. The original deadline was January 31, but was extended to March 2. Moreover, the extension is automatic and does not require any submitted request. Read more about the extension here.
As a best practice, we recommend getting started on your filings as early as possible. If you plan on using our Print & Mail services, we recommend having it ordered at least 1 week before the deadline.
