2015 Individual Tax Form Update
On January 27, 2016, the Coast Guard Personnel Service Center made the following announcement:
1. The Pay and Personnel Center (PPC) is in the process of printing and mailing calendar year 2015 IRS tax forms 1099R and W-2. IRS Forms 1099R and W-2 will be mailed to the member's home address recorded in Direct Access (DA) NLT 31 Jan 16. These forms will also be available in DA after this date.
2. Previous announcements reported that PPC would also print and mail IRS Forms 1095-B (Health Coverage) and 1095-C (Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage Insurance) by the end of Jan 2016. On 28 Dec 15 the IRS extended the deadline for agencies to mail IRS Forms 1095-B and 1095-C to NLT 31 Mar 16. IAW the Affordable Care Act (ACA), all Americans, including all military members (active duty, retired, selected reserve, or retired reserve) and their eligible family members must have health care coverage that meets a minimum standard called minimum essential coverage. Americans without minimum essential coverage must pay a fee. Your TRICARE coverage meets the minimum essential coverage requirement under the ACA. PPC will print and mail IRS Forms 1095-B and 1095-CNLT 31 Mar 16. It is important to note that members may still file their 2015 tax returns before receiving IRS Form 1095-B or 1095-C. The IRS has posted additional information and Q&A's addressing ACA tax provisions on their website, all of which are available at https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-drop/n-16-04.pdf and https://www.irs.gov/Affordable-Care-Act/Affordable-Care-Act-Tax-Provisions-Questions-and-Answers. IRS Forms 1095-B and 1095-C will also be available in DA after they have been printed and mailed.
