2018 Tax Reporting: Federal Form 1095-B
Note for Retirees with the City's Health Insurance: As a health plan sponsor, The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires the City of Milwaukee to send out Form 1095-B to retirees who have health insurance coverage through the City. Please note that you DO NOT need this form to file your taxes; however, you should keep Form 1095-B with all your tax records as supporting documentation. This form is only used to verify medical coverage to the IRS that you (and your covered tax dependents on your federal income tax filing) had health insurance coverage during the year—no amounts are listed on this form. If you need to reference year-to-date deductions that occurred during 2018, please refer to your December 2018 payment stub. Receiving Form 1095-B does not mean you owe income taxes on the value of the health care benefits you receive. Please note that additional benefits such as dental plans, life insurance or disability (through the ERS) do not need to be reported to the federal government and will not be included on Form 1095-B. If you have not received this form by February 15, 2019, please contact our office.
