A Message From HR

For the 2021 tax year, the IRS requires all individuals to report on their federal tax returns if they have health coverage that is compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The IRS requires all large employers, like Austin Community College (ACC), to issue an IRS Form 1095-C to each full-time employee who is offered and/or enrolled in health coverage that meets the minimum coverage standards set by the ACA. An ACC employee may receive their form electronically or via U.S. mail.

Electronic Forms  

Employees who would like to receive their 1095-C form electronically can do so by signing into Workday and electing to receive their tax documents electronically. 

Here is a video with instructions on how to change your delivery preference for the 1095-C forms: Updating your 1095-C Delivery Preference

Paper copies of the 1095-C form will not be mailed to those who have chosen to receive their forms electronically. 

Forms by U.S. Mail

Employees who do not consent to receive their tax documents electronically will receive a copy of their 2021 1095-C form by U.S. Mail to their home address. Employees should log in to Workday to verify that their home address is up to date.

For ACA purposes, a full-time employee is one who averages at least 30 hours of work per week during the year. This includes full-time faculty and staff, part-time employees, hourly and adjunct faculty, or any combination of these positions that results in a weekly average of 30 or more hours worked during the year.  

Full-time employees, regardless of whether or not they are enrolled in health coverage, will receive an IRS Form 1095-C from ACC on March 2, 2022.

ACC employees who are enrolled in either the HealthSelect, Consumer Directed HealthSelect Plan or if previously enrolled in Scott & White health plans through the Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS) have already been mailed their 1095-B from their health plan. 

The IRS Form 1095-B reports if you and each of your covered dependents had health coverage during the year. This form contains health coverage information that employees will need to report to the IRS as part of their annual income tax filing.  

If you do not receive your IRS Form 1095-B or if you lose it, you may call your medical insurance provider toll-free to request another copy. Please see the contact information below:
