2016 Tax Year Changes in Forms
Whether paper filing or e-filing, the deadline for 2016 W-2 and W-3 Forms is January 31, 2017.
The extension of time to file Form W-2 with the SSA is no longer automatic. You can still apply for one with Form 8809, on which you’re required to provide a detailed explanation of why you need more time.
New to ExpressIRSForms 1099 line-up is the Form 1099-B! Clients can now use us to securely e-file Form 1099-B, just as you would any other form. Form 1099-B is for brokers who need to report sales and trades they oversaw throughout the year.
Form 1099-MISC must be filed by January 31, 2017 if you’re reporting nonemployee compensation payments in box 7. Otherwise, the deadline is March 31, 2017.
Box 12 was added to Form 1099-INT to report bond premiums.
Form 1099-R now has a FATCA filing requirement check box.
Just added to the ExpressIRSForms 1099 line-up is Form 1099-S! Clients can now use their accounts to e-file 1099-S Forms securely with the IRS. Form 1099-S is for agents to report the sales or exchanges of real estate they oversaw during the year.
Changes to Codes
Codes 1I and 2I for lines 14 and 16, respectively, on Form 1095-C are no longer applicable and have been removed. New codes, 1J and 1K, have been added for line 14 on Form 1095-C.
For ACA Forms, several types of transition relief were available in 2015 under IRC Sections 4980H and 6056. For 2016, the amount of transition relief has been limited. References to transition relief that only applied to calendar year 2015 have been removed from the ACA Forms, and the descriptions of the remaining transition relief types have been amended for the 2016 tax year.
