On Sept. 28, 2017, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released final 2017 forms for reporting under Internal Revenue Code (Code) Sections 6055 and 6056. The 2017 forms are substantially similar to the 2016 versions, except that sections related to expired Section 4980H Transition Relief were removed.
Final instructions for 2017 have also been released.
Individual statements for 2017 must be furnished by Jan. 31, 2018. IRS returns for 2017 must be filed by Feb. 28, 2018 (April 2, 2018, if filed electronically, since March 31, 2018, is a Sunday). While the IRS extended the due date for furnishing last year’s individual statements to the end of March, the IRS does not anticipate extending the filing or furnishing deadlines for 2017 reporting.
