The IRS announced that they are moving back the deadlines for furnishing Forms 1095-C and 1095-B until March 4. As a result:
- Any employers with 50 or more full-time employees (including full-time equivalent employees) generally must furnish a Form 1095-C (Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage) to all their full-time employees no later than March 4, 2019.
- Employers who are self-insured with fewer than 50 full-time employees (including full-time equivalent employees) generally must furnish a Form 1095-B (Health Coverage) to all responsible individuals — typically the primary insured, an employee or former employee or other related person named on the application for insurance — no later than March 4, 2019.
Remember that the deadline for employers to file all Forms 1094 and 1095 with the IRS remains February 28, 2019. If you are filing electronically, the deadline is April 1, 2019. Click here for more information.
