You may be aware that the Affordable Care Act includes provisions for reporting through the IRS both the offer and the use of employer-provided health care plans. Tax forms will be due to be filed for the 2015 tax year from our health care plan and from all employers with more than 50 full-time equivalent employees. The information can be confusing and this can seem like a daunting task. We are working to help simplify reporting for the NCCUMC. Here are the steps we are taking for health care reporting for our conference:
- The Conference will file 1095-B forms for all of our participants on our health care plan. This means that local churches with less than 50 employees will not need to file any forms.
- We will email churches that may have 50 employees to make sure the church is evaluating the number of employees to determine if the church has to file 1095-C forms as an applicable large employer. If your church may be close to or over 50, please review guidance from the GBOPHB to help determine if you have to file.
- We will be filing 1095-C forms for the Conference as an applicable large employer for anyone on the annual conference payroll.
We will be talking more over the next few weeks about health care tax reporting. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
