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.

In addition, this notice also extends good faith transition relief from section 6721 and 6722 penalties to the 2018 information reporting requirements under sections 6055 and 6056.

Important Notes About The Deadline Extension:

  • ACA Reporting is still required for 2018
  • The good faith transition relief has been extended for 2018
  • The ACA Reporting requirements for 2018 have not changed
