ACA Reporting Still Due March 31 Despite Other COVID-19 Tax Delays

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently announced that it is delaying the federal income tax due date from April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020. In its announcement, the IRS stated that “this deferment applies to all taxpayers, including individuals, trusts and estates, corporations and other non-corporate tax filers as well as those who pay self-employment tax.”

The IRS previously provide relief from distributing 1095-Bs. Yet, for employers who may be struggling to complete and file its 1094-C and 1095-Cs amidst the chaos of COVID-19, the IRS has not yet issued similar relief from the looming March 31, 2020, ACA reporting deadline. Accordingly, applicable large employer should still plan to file its ACA reporting forms with the IRS no later than March 31, 2020.
