Form 1095-C Deadline for 2022 Tax Year

Updated on August 09, 2022 - 10:30 AM by Admin, TaxBandits

Nearing the end of the 2022 tax year, it's time for the employers to be aware of the ACA reporting requirements and its deadlines for 2023.

Under section 6056, every year the applicable large employers must file Form 1095-C with the IRS and furnish the copies to the employees before the deadline to avoid late filing penalties.

As a result, the IRS uses Form 1095-C to gather information from the employers about health coverage information offered to the employees.

The following topics are covered in this article:

1. When is the Deadline for filing Form 1095-C for 2023?

Every year, the IRS extends the reporting deadlines (especially the employee copy distribution deadline) for
Form 1095-C.

Along with the IRS E-filing, some States require employers to report the health coverage information to the State department before the deadline.

The States with Individual Mandates and their deadlines are mentioned below:

3. What are the penalties for late filing of Form 1095-C?

Under section 6056, applicable large employers must file IRS Form 1095-C with the IRS and furnish the copies to the employees before the deadline. Failure to file your Form 1095-C on time can result in penalties.

  • The penalty for failure to file a correct return is $280 for each return for which the failure occurs, with the total penalty for a calendar year not to exceed $3,392,000.
  • The penalty for failure to furnish a correct employee copy statement is $280 for each statement for which the failure occurs, with the total penalty for a calendar year not to exceed $3,392,000.

To avoid late filing penalties, follow these simple steps

  • File your 1095-C on or before the due date
  • Make sure of filing the correct information
  • Failing to file electronically when required. For example, Employers are mandated to report electronically if filing more than 250 Forms. In such a case, if you paper file, you will be penalized.

Note: The IRS is now considering reducing this threshold from 250 to 100 in 2022 and to 10 in 2023.
