Get ready guys, February’s here! And forget the stress of yesterday’s 1099 and W-2 Form deadline, we’ve got 1095 Forms to worry about!
Being the shortest month of the year, February naturally has two 1095 Form deadlines at the end of it.
February 28, 2017
First things first, all paper filers need to have their 1094 and 1095 Forms mailed to the IRS by February 28, 2017. This means the 1095 Forms you need to file must be completely filled out, a Form 1094 must be completed to go along with them, and they need to be stuffed in envelopes, stamped, and sent off to the IRS by the last day of this month.
March 2, 2017
If February were a normal amount of days, this deadline would fall on the actual last day (the thirtieth) of the month. But, since it doesn’t, the last day to send your 1095 Forms to your recipients is March 2, 2017.
Originally, these forms were due to your recipients by January 31. Imagine how hectic that would’ve been! However, the IRS extended the deadline to have 1095-B or 1095-C Forms to your recipients by a month to March 2. It isn’t the three-month extension they gave to each deadline last year, but, hey, it’s something!
