December 2016: Helpful Information about 1095-C and W-2 Forms

irs1095cHelpful Information about 1095-C and W-2 Forms


In early 2017, a 1095-C form will be provided to you by Texas Health Resources in addition to your W-2. This form will contain detailed information about your 2016 health care coverage. When filing your taxes, you will be asked for information from the form. The IRS will use the information you report from your 1095-C to determine whether you will pay a penalty for failing to have health care coverage as required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Like last year, you do not have to wait for the 1095-C form to file your taxes.

You can also consent to receive online delivery of your 1095-C. Find out more information here.
