Form 1095-B and 1095-C deadlines extended

The deadline to file federal tax forms 1095-B and 1095-C is now March 2, 2021. The IRS extended the original deadline from January 31, 2021. We are required to file form 1095-B. Fully insured and self-insured (Administrative Services Only) employers with 50 or more full-time employees, are considered Applicable Large Employers (ALE) and are required to file form 1095-C. 

Empire will send additional forms and reminders of IRS reporting throughout the year, following this approximate timeline:

  • 1095-B forms to fully insured members will be mailed through the end of February.
  • Social Security number (SSN) collection: We plan to send letters to members in early spring if we do not have a Social Security number on file for them. 
  • SSN and name reconciliation: We plan to send letters to members in late spring if their names, birthdates, or Social Security numbers do not match the IRS taxpayer database.
Please contact your Empire representative for more information.
