While the IRS is prepared to accept filings of the information returns beginning in January 2016, employers and other coverage providers are encouraged to furnish statements and file the information returns as soon as they are ready, but no later than the deadlines listed above.
There will be an additional cost to customers that are using RDA’s print service for ACA AND wish to take advantage of the IRS extension. The additional cost will be based upon volume to cover the overhead / costs involved. To control the additional costs, RDA will NOT mail the 1095 forms directly to the employees. The forms will be shipped to you for distribution. If this is something you would like to do, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP so we can let you know what your additional costs would be.
