Welcome Dow Corning
Affordable Care Act
(ACA) Tax Form 1095-C Requirement
Beginning in 2016, the ACA requires
employers like Dow Corning to furnish the IRS and employees/retirees with a new
statement, Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and
Coverage. Normally, these statements would be furnished to you by
January 31 of the year following coverage. However, in this first year,
the IRS extended the deadline to March 31, 2016. You will receive
the Form 1095-C by the March 31, 2016 deadline.
You do not need to wait for the Form
1095-C in order to file your U.S. Income Tax Return. You will not need to send the IRS proof of
your health coverage. However, when received, you should keep the Form
1095-C on file with your other tax records. If you and your family (i.e.,
dependents) had health care coverage, you check the coverage box on your tax
