Deadline, Deadline, Deadline! That seems to be the most used word of this season, right?
We’re here to help you with the upcoming Form 1095 deadline on March 4th, 2019.
Let’s just face it, tax deadlines will be coming your way “left and right” for the next couple of months.
Whether it’s a tax form that your business files each year or requesting an extension of time to file your personal taxes, “like a good tax preparer, TaxBandits is there!”
TaxBandits provides you with everything your business will need to quickly e-file Form 1095-B and Form 1095-C.
Are you unsure of what these forms are or need a little more information about them? Let’s dig a little deeper into the ACA (Affordable Care Act) world and find out!
What Is Form 1095?
Form 1095 actually has two entities, which cover specific areas of the Affordable Care Act.
Insurers, self-insuring employers, large employers, and other coverage providers file Form 1095-B or Form 1095-C to the individuals in which they cover.
These forms are statements provided to covered individuals and are used to determine whether they will claim the premium tax credit on their returns.
As the provider, it is extremely important that these forms are filed and distributed on time.
Form 1095-B is used to report certain information regarding minimum essential health insurance coverage to the IRS and individuals. This form is typically issued by insurance providers, including insurance companies, self-insured employers, employers with fewer than 50 full-time employees, and other agencies that provide health insurance coverage.
Form 1095-C is the annual statement that applicable large employers (ALEs) use to report to the IRS about the insurance offered to its large number of full-time employees.
When Does Form 1095 Have To Be Filed?
For years, 1095 Forms had to be filed by January 31. The new deadline for Form 1095 is March 4.
Like most tax forms, there are multiple filing due dates that apply to a specific form. The 1095 Form has three important deadlines, one of which we’ve already discussed.
Other deadlines for Form 1095-B and Form 1095-C are:
- February 28th – Paper file with the IRS
- April 1st – E-file with the IRS
