NEW RELEASE 01/20/2017
The 1095-C Form-Information for City of New Haven Employees
As was the case last year, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has again extended the deadline for the provision of the required Form 1095-C to employees under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In November the IRS issued a notice moving back the deadline for providing the 2016 version of these forms from January 31, 2017 to March 2, 2017. Recognizing that this would impact a taxpayer's ability to file the 2016 income taxes in a timely manner, the IRS has made it clear that taxpayers can prepare and file their returns using other information about their health insurance, and that they should not file 2016 Form 1095-C with their return.
What does that mean for you? The City intends to furnish the required 1095-C to all eligible employees by the March 2, 2017 deadline. Employees should feel free to file their 2016 federal tax return without waiting for the 1095-C. The IRS has made it clear that attaching the Form to the tax return is not required; instead when the Form is provided, please keep it on file with your 2016 tax records.
Linked HERE is a memo which provides some general information about the form itself and ACA reporting requirements.
