IRS Update for AIR Users

IRS Update for AIR Users

The IRS reported that they are currently in the process of making a series of revisions to the e-Services platform.  These changes will have temporary impact on the ACA application process for a Transmitter Control Code (TCC.)

There will be no impact to users who electronically file through the Affordable Care Act Information Returns (IRSAIR) program and who have Transmitter Control Code.

However, the press release from the IRS states, starting July 10, users will be unable to submit new ACA applications for TCC or make any changes to existing ACA applications for TCC. Because of the steps required in the ACA application review process, which includes some manual steps, the IRS asks that users submit by July 2 any new ACA applications for TCC or any changes to ACA application needed to complete the Tax Year 2016 filing. The ACA application for TCC process will be unavailable for three to five weeks.

This inconvenience will only affect filers who have not met the 2016 filing deadline. If for any reason you have not completed your 2016 filing you may be in jeopardy of being assessed penalties as a consequence of delinquent filing.
