The IRS has again determined that some employers, insurers and other providers of Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) need additional time to gather and analyze the information and prepare the 2018 Forms 1095-B and 1095-C to be furnished to individuals. Therefore, they have provided an additional 32 days for furnishing the 2018 Form 1095-B and Form 1095-C to employees.
This provides employers with an extended due date from Jan. 31, 2019, to March 4, 2019 to provide employees with the 1095 forms.
Notice 2018-94 does not extend the due date for filing forms with the IRS for 2018. The due date for filing with the IRS remains Feb. 28, 2019 (paper filing) or April 1, 2019 (if filing electronically).
