10 Tax Tips for the Suddenly Unemployed

If you are facing unexpected unemployment, you may be eligible for a variety of income tax benefits. Losing a job is always hard, but these tax tips should help you maximize your tax refund or reduce the taxes you owe.

Does Your Company Need to File Form 1095-B?

A company is responsible for filing IRS Form 1095-B only if two conditions apply: It offers health coverage to its employees, and it is "self-insured." This means that the company itself pays its employees' medical bills, rather than an insurance company. A company that doesn't meet both conditions won't have to deal with Form 1095-B. Its employees might still receive a 1095-B, but from their insurer, not the employer.

What is the Difference Between Forms 1094-C and 1095-C?

IRS Forms 1094-C and 1095-C are filed by employers that are required to offer health insurance coverage to their employees under the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The main difference between them is that the 1095-C provides information about health insurance and is sent to both employees and the IRS, while the 1094-C acts as a cover sheet about the 1095-C and is sent only to the IRS.

What is Employer Sponsored Coverage?

The term "employer-sponsored coverage" refers to health insurance obtained through an employer -- the most common way Americans get insurance. Employer-sponsored coverage includes not only insurance for current employees and their families, but can also include retired employees. Further, federal law gives former employees the right to stay on their employer's health insurance, at their own expense, for a time after leaving a job. That, too, is employer-sponsored coverage.

Business deductions must include things like office machines so why not bigger boobs? Reduction goes to medical.

I can understand she makes more money. However, what's really sad is she has an excellent figure (excluding the obvious), and a very pretty face. Give her a haircut and a normal size chest and she would be one hot mama!
