The Affordable Care Act (ACA) not only affects large employers, but it affects their employees as well. You may have already started to receive questions about Form 1095-C from your employees.
For 2017, the due dates for distributing Form 1095-C to employees and for filing this form with the IRS have both been moved to earlier dates compared to last year’s dates. Form 1095-C must be distributed to employees by March 2, 2017 (recently extended from the original date of January 31). These forms, along with any other ACA reporting forms such as 1094-B, 1094-C, and 1095-B, must be submitted to the IRS by February 28, 2017, if filing by paper, or March 31, 2017, if filing electronically.
