1095 Software: What’s New for Tax Year 2017?

IRS Forms 1095-C and 1095-B must be postmarked by January 31, 2018. The IRS gave companies a break with extended deadlines and leniency for good faith effort in prior years. But the tide has turned and the IRS has given no indication of extended deadlines or leniency for good faith efforts. If the IRS publishes any notices which extend the due dates for certain information reporting requirements for 2018, we will update this page immediately.

On November 1, 2017, Tax Year 2016 Forms will be considered a prior year return in AATS (Testing). When production opens in January, Tax Year 2016 Forms will be considered a prior year return in Production.  You can electronically file prior year originals and/or corrections and corrections are encouraged if you received ‘Accepted With Errors’.  However, putting together a prior year return is challenging.

To generate Tax Year 2016 or 2015 returns in AATS and Production use:

• Manifest file from Tax Year 2017 schema package
• Form Data File from Tax Year 2016 or 2015 schema package
• PaymentYr value “2016” or “2015”
• PriorYearDataInd value “1”
• Software Id for 2016 or 2015 (example, 2015 software Id’s start with 15XXXXXXXX)

We can help prepare and transmit current or prior year 1095 returns.  Just call sales at (480) 460-9311 with any questions.
