In January I shared sample answers to seven questions your employees might have about their 1095 forms. The positive response showed a lot of you are searching for plain language to help explain Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirements to your employees.
When the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently posted two tax tip web pages with answers to potential employee questions about 1095-Bs and 1095-Cs, I knew I needed to share them with you—Consider them another tool to help your workers understand the 1095s, those scary new forms showing up uninvited in their mailboxes.
The sample questions and answers come straight from the IRS and are pretty straightforward—yes, really! So feel free to use them according to your organization’s needs. Point your employees directly to the IRS web pages or copy and paste the Q&As into your own communication materials and tailor them to fit your organization.
Employee questions answered in the IRS tax tips:
- Will I get a Form 1095-C/1095-B?
- How do I use the information on my Form 1095-C/1095-B?
- What if I don’t get my Form 1095-C/1095-B?
Good luck with your communications; I hope you are seeing the light at the end of the ACA reporting tunnel. Next year will be the second time around for 1095s, so all will go smoothly, right???
