ICYMI: IRS Announces ACA Filing Deadline Extensions

Did you hear? Providing good news for many employers, the IRS recently announced extensions of the filing and provision deadlines for forms related to the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

* Employers have until March 31 to provide 1095-B and 1095-C forms to their employees*

* Employers filing on paper with fewer than 250 employees have until May 31 to provide 1095-B and 1095-C forms and 1094 forms to the IRS

* Employers filing electronically have until June 30 to provide 1095-B and 1095-C forms and 1094 forms to the IRS

*Please note that individual taxpayers should still file their taxes on time by April 15, 2016, even if they have not yet received their ACA-related forms.

Paycor's ACA Care team has been working diligently with more than 5,900 companies to alleviate the stress and burden of ACA filing. Here’s what our client Holly Mountain Enterprises had to say about their experience:

“I just have to share my experience with my ACA specialist. Trust me, this stuff has been scaring me to death. I just got off the phone from a scheduled ACA training session. When we started the call, I was nervous as could be, because it is scary and my mistakes can cost the company money. Before we were halfway through the call, I could feel the tension leaving. My specialist showed me what I needed to do, explained what I was doing wrong, and complimented me on what I was doing right. Thank you, Paycor!”
