  • For 2014 the IRS has issued new tax forms relating to the Affordable Care Act. One of these new forms is the new Form 1095 series which is used to confirm minimum essential health coverage.  Please note that although your tax-preparer may have prompted you for a Form 1095, the employer requirement for providing this form has been delayed until tax year 2015.  Even though there is no reporting requirement for employers for tax year 2014, employees will be required to report whether or not they had minimum essential coverage on their personal income tax return. Employees who were covered by a Ball State University medical plan for every month of 2014 had minimum essential coverage.  The University urges you to consult your tax advisor(s) or the Internal Revenue Service with any additional questions about these new reporting requirements.    


  • W-2 tax forms were mailed on Friday, January 16, 2015.  You may also view your W-2 information for 2014, 2013 and 2012 by logging into Self Service Banner.  Please click here for instructions on how to access your W-2 information on Self Service Banner.
