Notices from the IRS
IRS Criminal Investigation office is currently being inundated with reports of the latest scam whereby a fraudster poses as the CEO of a company and requests that an employee(s) provide all employees’ current year W-2 information to him/her. The fraudster then uses the information to commit tax-related identity theft.
The IRS Criminal Investigation office has asked that we alert our clients about this scam.
This year, all taxpayers with health insurance must have form 1095 A, B or C for their tax return. You do not have to file it with your return.
An open letter from our CEO, Kerri Cuff
Dear Taxpayer and Client,
On December 28, 2015 the IRS released IRS Notice 2016-04 which delays the provision of Form 1095-B & C to taxpayers until March 31, 2016 for tax year 2015.
Taxpayers are required to have qualified health insurance in 2015 or face a potential penalty nearly 400% larger than 2014’s penalty in some cases. Proof of insurance is provided on the 1095 form series which is required to prove the insurance and which is supposed to be reported to the IRS for matching purposes. Practically speaking all preparers must obtain copies of Form 1095-A, B or C to prove insurance or face a potential penalty for lack of due diligence.
This affects the returns we will be preparing starting next week! They also announced employees may rely on information from their employer to file the returns. Large employers are required to provide Form 1095-C proof of insurance to taxpayers in order to file their 2015 tax returns.
View the form here so you can gather information.
