STATEMENT FROM ACCESS HEALTH CT CEO JIM WADLEIGH REGARDING ANNOUNCEMNET FROM US DEPARTMENT OF TREASURY AND IRS ON

2015 TAX RETURNS

 

Hartford, CT - (April 10, 2015)  Access Health CT (AHCT) CEO Jim Wadleigh released the following information regarding an announcement from the US Department of Treasury and IRS on 2015 tax returns:

 

Individuals who are experiencing problems related to a 1095-A form and have not filed their 2014 federal tax return must file a request for an extension (Form 4868) with the IRS by midnight, April 15.  The U.S Department of Treasury and IRS intend to release guidance shortly implementing penalty relief for individuals in this situation as long as they file a return by October 15, 2015.  When taxpayers receive their correct 1095-A form, they should file their return using the information on the corrected form.  If a taxpayer receives their form 1095-A before April 15 and is able to file using the form before the deadline, they should do so.

 

The Treasury and IRS have also previously announced that any individual who received an incorrect Form 1095-A, and filed his or her tax return based on that form does not need to file an amended tax return.  The IRS will not pursue the collection of any additional taxes from these individuals based on updated information in the corrected forms.  Some individuals may choose to file amended returns, and may also want to consult with their tax preparers to determine if they would benefit from amending.  If Connecticut consumers have not already filed their tax returns and did not receive a 1095-A from Access Health CT, please contact us at 866-230-8920.  For more information please see the US Treasury link:  http://www.treasury.gov/press-center/press-releases/Pages/jl10018.aspx
