Important Information Regarding Your 1095 Tax Form

Important Information Regarding Your 1095 Tax Form

When you file your federal income taxes this year, you may not need a 1095 form to report your health coverage. That’s because the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act removed the individual mandate tax penalty.

What Is a 1095-B Form?

Form 1095-B is a tax form that reports:

  • The type of health plan you have
  • The people covered by your plan
  • When you were covered during the last year
