IRS Announces ACA Filing Extension for 2018

On November 29, 2018 the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced an ACA deadline extension. Specifically, this notice extends the due date for furnishing to individuals the 2018 Form 1095-B, Health Coverage, and the 2018 Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage, from January 31, 2019, to March 4, 2019.
