How do I file for an extension on my 1095 forms?

The Yearli Desktop software does not offer the ability to submit requests for filing extensions to the federal government.  Please use the information below to find the best process to request a filing extension from the federal government. 

1095 Extension

  • Complete Form 8809.
  • File the 8809 as soon as it is known an extension is needed.  The 8809 must be filed by the due date of the return (February 28 for paper filed 1095 forms or March 31 for e-filed 1095 forms).
  • If approved, the extension will be for 30 days from the original due date of the return.
  • A second extension may be requested for an additional 30 days.  If this is needed, complete form 8809 and check the box on line 5.

Notice 2020-76 automatically extends the due date for furnishing Form 1095-C from January 31, 2021 to March 2, 2021.  Thus, no additional extensions will be granted.
