American Benefits Council Request to IRS for Streamlined ACA Reporting Extension Request Process
American Benefits CouncilLink to more items from this source
Dec. 28, 2015

"Since final Instructions for the Forms were not released until September of 2015, and the AIR testing for tax year 2015 did not begin until November of 2015, employers have had limited time to learn and understand the complex rules with respect to the reporting.... It would benefit both the employer community and the IRS if this process could be streamlined, at least for the 2016 filings. We urge the IRS to allow employers either to: (a) avail themselves of an automatic extension, without the need to make any formal filing before the IRS; or (b) file a request for extension that only requires the provision of a limited amount of information ... and to provide for an automatic thirty-day extension if such a request is granted."
