IRS Extends Deadline for Furnishing Form 1095-C to Employees

The IRS has extended by 30 days the deadline for providing Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage, to each employee. The new deadline is March 2, 2018, replacing the original Jan. 31 deadline.

Form 1095-C affects Applicable Large Employers (ALEs), those with 50 or more employees, who are mandated to provide essential health benefits. The form is used by employees to provide proof to the IRS that they have been covered by health insurance and thus are not subject to any tax penalty.

The transmission dates to the IRS for the same form have not changed: Feb. 28 for paper filers and April 2 for electronic filers.
