IRS Extends Due Dates for New 2015 Information Reporting Requirements
On Dec. 28th, the IRS announced that they have extended the due dates for new health care information reporting forms.
Applicable large employers now have additional time to provide health coverage information for 2015 to individual taxpayers and the IRS. Form 1095-C must be delivered to full-time employees by March 31, 2016.
Due to these extensions, some individual taxpayers may not receive a Form 1095-C by the time they are ready to file their 2015 tax return. While the information on these forms may assist in preparing a return, they are not required in 2015. Individuals do not have to wait for their Form 1095-C in order to file.
