Tis the Season for Year-End

Save the Dates

It’s that time of year again! Deadlines are approaching for year-end processing and filing.

U.S. clients must send W-2s to employees by January 31, 2022. The IRS recently extended the deadline for furnishing 1095-Cs to employees to March 02, 2022. Note that the IRS deadline to transmit 1094-C/1095-C information remains unchanged at March 31, 2022.

If you are using PDS’s ACA and W-2 Services, please keep the following dates in mind:

  • January 17, 2022: Deadline to transmit W-2 print file to PDS
  • January 17, 2022: Deadline to transmit 1095-C print file to PDS
  • March 18, 2022: Deadline to transmit 1094-C/1095-C transmission files to PDS

Canadian clients have until February 28, 2022 to furnish T4s and RL-1s to employees.
