The IRS provided additional relief from penalties related to failures to furnish 2020 forms to individuals under Section 6055 only, under certain circumstances. Under this relief, employers will only have to provide Form 1095-B to covered individuals upon request.

The IRS also provided a final extension of good-faith relief from penalties related to incorrect or incomplete information returns filed for the 2020 calendar year under Sections 6055 and 6056. This is the last year that the IRS intends to provide good-faith relief from penalties, since it was intended to be transitional relief only.
