Employees may request electronic 2017 tax forms

Employees may choose to download electronic IRS W-2 and 1095-C forms for the 2017 tax year, versus receiving paper forms in the mail. Downloading forms provides quick access, is more environmentally friendly and helps YNHHS save on expensive postage. The W-2 form reports annual earnings; 1095-C reports employer-provided health insurance offered and coverage. Employees must make a request to electronically download forms when they become available in January. If you take no action, paper copies will automatically be mailed to your home. Links to request electronic forms will be posted Dec. 1 on the Employee Self Service dashboard and YNHHS HR intranet landing page. Requests must be made by Dec. 27. Electronic forms will be available for download as soon as they are approved for processing and no later than Jan. 31, 2018. Employees who have paper forms mailed should be sure their correct home address is in ESS by Dec. 27.

Reminder: The W-2 form is provided to all employees who receive compensation from YNHHS in a given year. The 1095-C form will be provided to most, but not all employees, based on the Affordable Care Act requirements and hours worked. Information from both forms is required for employees to file their taxes, and the forms should be kept with tax records. A 1095-C fact sheet, including information on who will receive this form, will be posted Dec. 1 on ESS and the YNHHS HR intranet.
