    Important Notice regarding your 2020 IRS Form 1095-B: 

    Per IRS guidance, for Tax Year 2020, the Fund will not automatically be mailing IRS Form 1095-B to participants. However, participants may receive a copy of their 2020 IRS Form 1095-B from the Fund upon request to the Fund Office. If you would like a copy of your 2020 Form 1095-B, you may request a copy by email at: Eligibility@8thdistrictbf.org, by phone at: (844) 989-2321, or by mailing your request to: P.O. Box 30751, Salt Lake City, UT 84130.

    As a reminder, the 2020 IRS Form 1095-B indicates the months in 2020 in which participants had qualifying health coverage from the Fund. In the past, the IRS has used this information for two purposes:(1) to enforce the individual mandate penalty in the Affordable Care Act, and (2) to determine eligibility for a premium tax credit for  individuals receiving coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. However, in 2019, Congress reduced the individual mandate penalty to $0. Participants no longer need the information on Form 1095-B to complete their federal income tax return. As such, the IRS is no longer requiring the Fund mail the form to Participants, and the Fund has elected not to do so. However, the Fund is still required to submit this information to the IRS. Accordingly, if you would like a copy of your 2020 IRS Form 1095-B, you have a right to receive a copy by contacting the Fund Office.

     If you have any questions, please contact the Fund Office at: (844) 989-2321.
