Form 1095-C Employee Communication

January 20, 2016

In December 2015, the IRS announced a delay for employers to issue Form 1095-C until March 31, 2016. However, some employers have decided to stick with the original January 31, 2016 deadline and issue Form 1095-C along with W-2s to employees.

Whether you delay until March 31, or opt to distribute 1095-C forms in January, we encourage you to communicate about the forms in advance to alleviate confusion, as many tax preparers may ask your employees for a copy of this form.

To help you communicate this topic, we created a Frequently Asked Questions sheet to share with your employees.
