ALERT: Security Improvements & 1095 Forms - April 1, 2016

ALERT - Security Improvements & 1095Documents

 

 

Despite security improvements to fight identity theft issues, the IRS will still process nine out of 10 federal refunds within 21 days. States have their own refund processing time frames that may vary, and some states may make additional reviews to ensure refunds are being issued properly.

 

 

Don't wait for 1095-B/C: Many taxpayers will receive a Form 1095-B or 1095-C with information about their health care coverage. You may have heard that the IRS has extended the time for health coverage providers and employers to furnish these forms. You should be aware that you don't have to wait for these forms in order to file your tax return and you don't have to send these forms to the IRS. You can rely on other information to determine your health coverage.
