If you know that meeting your deadline just isn’t possible, your best option is to file an extension. The extension that applies to ACA forms is Form 8809. Please be aware that you must file Form 8809 by midnight (your time zone) tomorrow in order for the IRS to grant your extension.
The extension Form 8809 will buy you some time, but not much. A Form 8809 extension will only give you an additional 30 days to e-file your ACA Forms.
When the alternative is potential penalties, an additional 30 days to file is still extremely helpful. This is an automatic extension that can be filed electronically within minutes. The IRS won’t require you to justify or provide any reasoning for your extension. As long as you provide information that matches IRS records and file it on time, you should be approved.
If you are interested in getting an extension for your ACA Forms, we recommend that you file with our sister product, ExpressExtension.
