Self Service Electronic 1095-C
Electronic Form 1095-C is available on Tax Form
Bowling Green State University is required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to furnish all employees with a 1095-C for each calendar year to be used in completing the employees' annual tax returns. The 1095-C details the employee's compensation and tax withholding amounts for the year. In the past, employees have received paper copies of their 1095-C.
Beginning for tax year 2016, in an attempt to deliver 1095-C's to employees sooner in the new year, we are offering you the service of obtaining your 1095-C's electronically in place of paper copies. Bowling Green State University employees now have the opportunity to receive their 1095-C statements electronically through the MyTaxForm.com.
Please read this entire Notice and provide your consent to receive all future 1095-C statements in an electronic format instead of in paper delivered through the US Mail.
Benefits of Receiving Form 1095-C Electronically
There are multiple benefits to receiving an electronic Form 1095-C:
- Earlier access to the Form 1095-C.
- No possibility an employee's Form 1095-C might be lost, stolen, delayed or misplaced by the U.S. mail service or by the employee, once received.
- Access is available at the same easy-to-use, secure web site at which an employee can access his/her wage and general account information.
- Access can be attained even if the employee is not presently at his/her residence, for example, if participating in a University foreign program.
An employee who consents to receiving his/her Form 1095-C electronically will not receive a paper copy of the 1095-C. If an employee does not consent, he/she will continue to receive a paper copy of the 1095-C. Once an employee has signed up, the consent is valid for all subsequent years unless the employee chooses to withdraw consent.
An employee who chooses to receive his/her Form 1095-C electronically can also receive a paper copy of the 1095-C by contacting the Human Resources in writing. This may be done via email to: email@example.com or U.S. Mail to: Office of Human Resources, Bowling Green State University, 1851 N. Research Dr., Bowling Green, OH, 43403. Request for a paper copy does not withdraw the employee's consent for electronic delivery of future 1095-C statements.
An employee may withdraw his/her consent by at anytime. If consent is withdrawn, it will only be effective for any Form 1095-C's not yet issued.
The University will not provide the Form 1095-C electronically to an individual who has terminated his/her employment with Bowling Green State University. These individuals will receive paper copies via U.S. mail.
Employees may continue to make any personal information changes (i.e. address changes) as needed through the MyBGSU self service web portal.
The hardware and software requirements needed to access, print and retain Form 1095-C electronically include an internet connection, web browser, and Adobe Acrobat reader.
The Form 1095-C may be required to be printed and attached to a federal, state, or local income tax return.
