The IRS issued forms and deadlines in October 2017 for employers to file their Affordable Care Act (ACA) information for the 2017 plan year. On Dec. 22, 2017, the IRS implemented an automatic 30-day extension for employers to supply Forms 1094-C and 1095-C to their employees (to March 2, 2018), but they did not extend the deadline for employers to file their information returns with the IRS. The December notice also extended a good-faith transition relief to 2017 information reporting, but this applies only to incomplete or incorrect information, not to late filings.
