Extensions in Reporting Due Dates for forms Sent to Individuals

The IRS had extended the due dates for sending the 1095-B and 1095-C forms to individuals. The original deadline of 1/31/2018 has been extended to 3/2/2018. The extension is automatic; employers do not have to request.

Employers and insurers are encouraged to send the forms to individuals as soon as possible, but the deadline date has been extended. If an individual files their taxes before receipt of the 1095-B and 1095-C forms will not be required to amend their return, however they should retain the forms for their tax records.
