(posted: March 1st, 2017)

Filing Deadlines

Employers subject to the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) information reporting requirements are reminded that the deadline to electronically file ACA information returns with the IRS is quickly approaching.

The reporting deadlines in 2017 are for the 2016 calendar year, and are as follows:

  • Applicable large employers (ALEs) - generally those with 50 or more full-time employees, including full-time equivalents - must electronically file Forms 1094-C and 1095-C with the IRS no later than March 31, 2017. The deadline to file paper returns was February 28, 2017.
  • Self-insuring employers that are not considered ALEs, and other parties that provide minimum essential health coverage, must electronically file Forms 1094-B and 1095-B with the IRS no later than March 31, 2017. The deadline to file paper returns was February 28, 2017.

Note: Employers filing 250 or more Forms 1095-B or 1095-C are required to electronically file them with the IRS.

Additional information on electronic filing can be found on the IRS's ACA Information Returns (AIR) Program webpage.
