The deadline for all taxpayers to file and pay their federal income taxes was extended from April 15, 2021, until May 17, 2021.
During this extension and throughout the tax season, you may not assist clients with filing taxes (unless you are a licensed tax professional).
However, you may:
- Help them understand what a Form 1095-A is and what it means as they prepare their taxes
- Show them how to access their Form 1095-A in their online accounts
- Ensure they are aware of the potential implications of not providing the information found in their Form 1095-A on their federal income tax return
- And more!
This extension only applies to federal taxes. For more details on tax deadlines in individual states, your clients should contact their state tax agency.
Contact your Cornerstone representative with any questions.
