IRS Extends Due Dates for Certain ACA Information-Reporting Requirements

On November 18, the IRS released Notice 2016-70, which contains two important announcements with respect to the employer reporting requirements for the 2016 calendar year (i.e., the reports that will be due next year).

Employers will not be required to provide individuals with their Form 1095-C until March 2, 2017 (rather than January 31, 2017). However, the deadline for filing employer reporting with the IRS currently remains the same.

The transition relief that the IRS provided for 2015 employer reporting, to those plan sponsors who made good-faith efforts to comply with the information-reporting requirements, has been extended for another year.
