IRS Extends (Some) 2016 Form 1095 Due Dates
The IRS has issued Notice 2016-70, extending the due date for 1095-B and 1095-C forms to be sent to employees from January 31, 2017 until March 2, 2017. However, the Notice also points out that the regular due date for filing those same 1095-Bs and Cs with the IRS (covered by the 1094-B or 1094-C) remains the same: February 28, 2017 if filing paper copies or March 31, 2017 if filing electronically.
So apparently the IRS has a time machine if you were to create the 1095s on either March 1st or 2nd to distribute to employees, and were eligible to file paper copies by February 28th?
