Electronic Filing Deadline – ACA Reporting Services
This post is for Applicable Large Employers (ALEs) required to comply with the Affordable Care Act. We hope you find it useful.
The following is sourced from fuseworkforce.com about ACA reporting deadlines:
“Some employers have the option to file their ACA reporting by paper or electronically. However, any ALE filing more than 250 of any type of form MUST file ACA information returns electronically.
If you will be filing less than 250 forms, you may file by paper, though the IRS encourages electronic filing (and the deadline to file by paper comes a month earlier than the electronic reporting deadline).
Monday, April 1, 2019 – Deadline to file Forms 1094-C/1095-C if filing electronically.
ACA Deadline Extensions
In the past, the IRS has offered all sorts of deadlines, declaring each year the last it would offer extensions. While the number and generosity of extensions have lessened, so far, we’ve still seen the IRS extend at least one or more deadlines every year.
To practice smart compliance, don’t rely on the hope of an ACA reporting extension from the IRS. Instead, plan ahead to meet the deadline. If meeting the deadline just isn’t realistic, you may apply for an extension.
To apply for an ACA reporting extension with the IRS, submit a Form 8809 on or before the due date of the return for an automatic extension. This form does not require a signature. For an additional 30-day extension, the filer or an authorized agent must sign the form.”
