Recently, the IRS extended the deadline for distributing IRS Forms 1095-C and 1095-B to employees from February 1, 2016 to March 31, 2016. As such, Kistler Tiffany Benefits is providing its clients with customizable letters that may be issued to employees explaining the new employee returns (either the Form 1095-B or Form 1095-C). These letters could be included in the same mailing as the employee return. NOTE: These letters require customization.
As a general reminder, Form 1094-B and Form 1095-B (and related instructions) will be used by entities reporting under Section 6055, including sponsors of self-insured group health plans that are not reporting as Applicable Large Employers, or “ALEs” (e.g. employers with fewer than 50 full-time employees including full-time equivalents sponsoring a self-insured group health plan).
Form 1094-C and Form 1095-C (and related instructions) will be used by ALEs (e.g. employer with 50 or more full-time employees including full-time equivalents) that are reporting under Section 6056, and for combined reporting by ALEs that sponsor self-insured plans required to report under both Sections 6055 and 6056.
