IRS Extends Deadline to Provide 1095-C Forms to Employees and Extends “Good Faith Effort” Relief for 2019

The IRS has extended the deadline to provide 1095-C forms to employees from January 31, 2020 to March 2, 2020. This will provide employers an extra month to provide the 1095-C forms.

Additionally, the IRS is extending “good faith effort” transition relief to reporting employers for 2019.  This relief is provided to employers that file inaccurate information so long as they file in a timely manner and can show that they have made a good faith effort to file completely and accurately.

This information is within Notice 2019-63 that was released by the IRS on 12/02/19 entitled “Transition Relief Related to Health Coverage Reporting Required by I.R.C. Sections 6055 and 6056 for 2019”.
