ACA 2015 Reporting

Deadlines Delayed

On Dec. 28, 2015, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued Notice 2016-4 to delay the due dates for filing and furnishing forms under Section 6055 and 6056.

  • The due date for furnishing forms to individuals has been extended from Feb. 1, 2016, to March 31, 2016.
  • The due date for filing forms with the IRS has been extended from Feb. 29, 2016, to May 31, 2016 (or, from March 31, 2016, to June 30, 2016, if filing electronically).

The IRS is encouraging employers and other coverage providers to furnish statements and file information returns as soon as they are ready.


The new deadlines are more generous than prior extensions and apply automatically to all reporting entities. No request or additional documentation is required. Entities that had previously requested extensions will not be receiving formal approval of those requests.
