IRS Proposes Permanently Extending the Deadline for Distributing 1095 Forms to Individuals
The IRS released 2021 Forms 1094 and 1095 for ACA (Affordable Care Act) Reporting and proposed permanently changing the deadline for employers to provide copies of Form 1095 to employees. For 2021 calendar year reporting, statements must be provided to participants by March 2, 2022.

However, the proposed rules include eliminating penalty relief for reporting errors (Notice 2020-76). This means employers must take extra care this year to make sure forms are accurate and complete.
