  • Churches file Copy A of Form 1098-C with the IRS by this date to report the sale or use of a donated vehicle. Generally, you must furnish Copies B and C of this form to the donor no later than 30 days after the date of sale if box 4a is checked, or 30 days after the date of the contribution if box 5a or 5b is checked. If box 7 is checked, do not file Copy A with the IRS and do not furnish Copy B to the donor. You may furnish Copy C to the donor. The donor is required to obtain Copy C or a similar acknowledgment by the earlier of the due date (including extensions) of the donor’s income tax return for the year of the contribution or the date that return is filed. File Copy A of this form with the IRS by February 28, 2019. If you file electronically, the due date is March 31, 2019.
  • Applicable Large Employers, generally employers with 50 or more full-time employees (including full-time equivalent employees) in the previous year, must file a Form 1095-C for each employee who was a full-time employee of the employer for any month of the previous calendar year by this date. Generally, the employer is required to furnish a copy of Form 1095-C (or a substitute form) to the employee. The employer also files a Form 1094-C transmittal form with the IRS (including copies of each Form 1095-C). The purpose of this form is to ensure that applicable large employers are complying with the shared responsibility provisions of the ACA. Forms 1094-C and 1095-C must be issued by this date or by March 31, 2019, if issued electronically.

Note: If a date listed for filing a return or making a tax payment falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday (either national or statewide in a state where the return is required to be filed), the return or tax payment is due on the following business day.

Note: You must use electronic funds transfer to make all federal employment tax deposits. This is generally done using the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System, a free service provided by the U.S. Department of Treasury. If you don't wish to use EFTPS, you can arrange for your tax professional, financial institution, or payroll service to make deposits on your behalf. Failure to make a timely deposit may subject you to a 10-percent penalty.
