It’s tax season again, which means a lot of paperwork, number crunching, and confusion.
For the second year, this includes the reporting employers submit about their health care plans, beginning with the distribution of the ever-confusing 1095-C. While employers have their own set of questions regarding the 1095-C, employees may not understand what their role is when it comes to reporting.
Here are some common questions that employees may ask about handling the 1095-C and how you can answer them.
With his executive order on the Affordable Care Act, Donald Trump signaled to the world that he’s serious about health care reform. The order also introduced a slew of new questions for employers, who are already struggling with ACA reporting and compliance amid the law’s uncertain future.
