JANUARY 2020 – AFFORDABLE CARE ACT (ACA) TAX PROVISIONS
The Administration Office will provide you with tax Form 1095-B which shows whether you and your family had qualifying health coverage for part or all of 2019.
You DO NOT need Form 1095-B to file your taxes. Just like last year, you can check a box on your tax return verifying you had qualifying health coverage.
You can expect to receive your Form 1095-B for the 2019 tax year in the mail by January 31, 2020. Check to make sure it’s accurate and keep it with the rest of your tax documents.
If you have any questions regarding Form 1095-B, please contact the Administration Office at (800) 478-8329, option 4.
