Employer Health Coverage Filings Due Date Extended

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, New Jersey recently announced that employers with employees in New Jersey now have until May 15 to file Forms 1095-C with the New Jersey Division of Taxation. As background, beginning in 2019, the New Jersey Health Insurance Market Preservation Act (HIMPA) requires third-party reporting to verify health coverage information supplied by individual payers of New Jersey’s income tax. Under HIMPA, employers and all other providers of MEC were originally required to file their employer mandate reporting forms with the Division of Taxation on or before March 31, 2020.

This announcement extends that due date to May 15, 2020. Employers with employees in New Jersey should ensure that they file those forms by the new due date.
