IRS Extends 2018 Deadline to Furnish 1095-B and 1095-C to Individuals
On December 22, the IRS issued Notice 2018-06 to announce that it is extending the January 31 deadline to provide individuals with a copy of form 1095-B and/or 1095-C by 30 days. This automatic 30-day extension does not require employers and issuers to take additional steps to request the extension. The deadlines to file the appropriate ACA reporting forms with the IRS remain unchanged.

|To IRS: 1094-B & 1095-B or 1094-C & 1095-C

Note: Due to the extension, some individuals may not receive form 1095-B or 1095-C prior to filing their individual income tax return. However, while helpful in completing the individual income tax return, the forms are not required to complete the return, so individuals should not wait for the forms.
