IRS Announces 2018 ACA Reporting Extensions
Published on by Rhonda Siex in Blog Posts, CS3 Technology


On November 29, 2018, the IRS published Notice 2018-94 extending the deadline to distribute Forms 1095-B and 1095-C to employees. Employers with 50 or more employees now have until March 4, 2019 to provide these forms to full-time equivalent employees showing they were offered health coverage compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). However, this extension only applies to copies provided to the Employees and does not extend the dates for reporting to the IRS.

A word of warning – Although we have seen extensions to these delivery dates in the years since the ACA was rolled out, those extensions are getting shorter and should not be expected to continue year over year. At CS3 Technology, we believe that it’s just as easy to distribute your 1095 forms with your W2’s when possible. (Especially since the IRS filing deadline has not been extended.)

Below is the revised list of ACA deadlines for the 2018 calendar year as found on the SHRM website.

Please note: Employers filing forms for 250 or more employees are required to file electronically.
