    NEW RELEASE - 02/19/2016
    The 1095-C Form-Information for City of New Haven Employees
    As many of you are aware, 2015 is the first year in which employers are required under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to furnish employees with a form 1095-C. Because so many employers were struggling to meet this requirement, in late December the IRS issued a notice moving back the deadline for providing these forms from January 31, 2016 to March 31, 2016. Recognizing that this would impact the individual taxpayer's ability to file their 2015 income taxes in a timely manner, they also dropped the requirement that the 2015 1095-C be filed with your return.
    What does that mean for you? The City intends to furnish the required 1095-C to all eligible employees by the March 31, 2016 deadline. Employees should feel free to file their 2015 federal tax return without waiting for the 1095-C. The IRS has made it clear it is not required for this tax year.

     Linked HERE is a memo which provides some general information about the form itself and ACA reporting requirements.

    Connecticut residents who may have been impacted by the cyber-attack against Anthem, should be aware of scam email campaigns targeting current and former Anthem members. These scams, designed to capture personal information (known as "phishing") are designed to appear as if they are from Anthem and the emails include a "click here" link for credit monitoring. These emails are NOT from Anthem.
