IRS Electronic Filing Deadline is April 2

With the April 2 deadline to electronically file Forms 1094 & 1095 with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) approaching, employers are reminded that failing to comply with these information reporting requirements may result in significant penalties. These penalties are as follows:

  • Employers that fail to file correct information returns with the IRS and furnish correct payee statements are generally subject to a $260 penalty for each return for which such failure occurs, with a maximum annual penalty of over $3 million.
  • Employers that file correct returns and furnish correct statements on or before 30 days after the required filing date are generally subject to a $50 penalty for each return for which such failure occurs, with a maximum annual penalty of over $500,000.
  • Employers that file correct returns and furnish correct statements beyond 30 days after the required filing date but on or before August 1, 2018 are generally subject to a $100 penalty for each return for which such failure occurs, with a maximum annual penalty of over $1 million.
