IRS Grants Permanent 30-Day Extension to Providing Individual ACA Statements
Read Time: 4 Minutes

‘Tis the season for applicable large employers (ALEs) to scramble to meet their Affordable Care Act (ACA) obligation to provide full-time employees with individual statements that provide group health coverage information required to be filed with the IRS on Form 1095-C. Although the ACA generally requires ALEs to furnish individual statements by no later than January 31 of the year following the year being reported, each year the IRS has extended the deadline by 30 days. The IRS recently issued final rules that will make the 30-day extension permanent effective for calendar years starting on or after January 1, 2022. So, individual statements relating to 2022 coverage must be provided by no later than March 2, 2023.

Compliance Question of the Week

Q: What is "at-will employment"? Does that mean I can fire an employee for any reason?

A: At-will employment means that the employer or employee can end the employment relationship for almost any reason (with or without cause) at any time (with or without notice).
It does not, however, allow you to terminate someone for an illegal reason, like their inclusion in a protected class or their exercise of a legal right.
