Are you getting ready to file your 2019 federal income tax return? The Administration Office will be mailing the Form 1095-B by March 1, 2020. The form will identify if you and your family had qualifying health coverage for part or all of 2019. Please check to make sure the information on the form is accurate and keep it with the rest of your tax documents.
It is not necessary to wait for the 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.
If you have any questions regarding Form 1095-B, please contact the Administration Office at (800) 478-4431, option 4.
