The IRS recently released final Forms 1094-C and 1095-C, which Applicable Large Employers (ALEs) will use to report their offers of coverage made to employees during the 2021 calendar year. In all previous reporting years, the IRS has extended the deadline by which ALEs must furnish Form 1095-C to employees, but no such extensions are expected going further.ALEs reporting health coverage information for the 2021 calendar year must meet the following deadlines:
· Form 1095-C must be furnished no later than January 31, 2022.
· Forms 1094-C and 1095-C must be filed with the IRS no later than February 28, 2022, if filing by paper, or March 31, 2022, if filing electronically.
The IRS continues enforcing these ALE reporting requirements, and ALEs who fail to meet these deadlines can be subject to civil penalties of $280 per form not timely furnished and $280 per form not timely filed.
