Hey there, ACA filers! If you used Form 8809 way back before March 31 this year to extend the deadline to file your Affordable Care Act Forms 1094 and 1095 with the IRS, here’s your friendly reminder that your new and extended deadline is coming up soon!
There’s no doubt that March was a busy month, which means you would’ve had to rush through your return to get it done, and that’s why the IRS came up with deadline extension forms: to help make sure you can get your forms completed and filed correctly. So the original deadline was March 31, 2017, for your tax year 2016 ACA Forms and you applied for a 30-day extension with Form 8809, which means your new deadline is coming up in less than two weeks on April 30, 2017.
But wait, you may be saying, the 30th is on a Sunday and right you are! So technically your real deadline is May 1, 2017, since the IRS will be closed on your official new deadline.
Now, some of you may have taken Form 8809 one step further and applied for a non-automatic, additional 30 days to file with a second paper 8809 Form. If that’s the case, your deadline’s still coming up, but not as quickly – May 31st rather than April 30th.
And if you still need somewhere to file, you can do so quickly and easily right here with ACAwise! Just upload your ACA data as you already have it and our program does the rest. Review your forms once they’re done then securely transmit them to the IRS. Simple as that.
