IMPORTANT HEALTH COVERAGE TAX DOCUMENTS
Important Notice regarding your 2022 IRS Form 1095-B:
Per IRS guidance, for Tax Year 2022, the Fund will not
automatically be mailing IRS Form 1095-B to participants. However, participants may receive a
copy of their 2022 IRS Form 1095-B from the Fund upon request to the Fund
Office. If you would like a copy of your 2022 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 2022 IRS Form 1095-B indicates the months in
2022 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 2022 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.
