Notice body

Auburn University employees will receive Form W-2 by Jan. 31 for tax year 2016. The form is available online now through Self-Service Banner. All full-time employees will also receive a Form 1095C employer-provided health insurance offer and coverage along with an informational summary of benefits for 2016. More information about each of these documents is included below.

Form W-2
Employers are required to furnish wage and salary information to all employees on a Form W-2, also called the Wage and Tax Statement. The Form W-2 includes the employee’s annual wages in the reported calendar year, along with the amount of taxes that were withheld from the employee.

Auburn University Human Resources will mail this form to employee mailing address as currently recorded in Self-Service Banner. 

Form 1095C
Form 1095C includes information about the health coverage offered to full-time employees and a confirmation for which months they and their family members received health coverage. Full-time employees will receive this tax form because Auburn University must provide proof of health insurance to employees and the IRS as a requirement of the Affordable Care Act.

Form 1095C will contain information that an employee will use to complete their IRS Form 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ. The form includes three parts. The first part provides basic information about the employee and Auburn University. The second part provides details about the type of health coverage that was offered. The third part provides information about the employee and their dependents who received Auburn University health coverage during the year.

This form will be mailed to employee mailing addresses in Banner, separately from the Form W2. An example form similar to the one that employees will receive is also available on the Human Resources website.

Summary of Benefits
For additional information regarding the benefit package at Auburn University, Human Resources will provide full-time employees with the annual summary of benefits. The State of Alabama and local boards of education are required to provide an annual itemized statement of all employee and retirement benefits received or accrued by an employee or retiree from his or her employer. The statement will also include information about the total employer contributions to retirement systems. Please note that this statement is not required for the 2016 tax return and is strictly informational. Employees will also be able to access and review this statement online.

If you have questions about any of these forms, contact Auburn University Human Resources at 844-4145.
