IRS Extends Due Date for Furnishing 2018 Forms 1095-B and 1095-C to Individuals, But Not for Filing With the IRS

Once again (in Notice 2018-94) the IRS has extended the deadline for furnishing Forms 1095-B and 1095-C to individuals from January 31 to March 4, 2019. 

The notice does not extend the due date for filing Forms 1094-B and 1094-C (and accompanying Form 1095s) with the IRS. Accordingly, the deadline remains February 28, 2019, for paper filings, and April 1, 2019, for electronic filings.  The electronic filing of  information returns (Forms 1094/1095) for the 2018 tax year will become available on January 15, 2019, at approximately 9 a.m. Eastern time.
