There will be a few more forms needed this tax season, thanks to the Affordable Care Act. All Americans will be required to prove that their health care coverage meets the minimum essential coverage standard, or possible pay a fee.
For most Americans, 1095 is the tax form needed to prove their health insurance meets the standard.
However, military members, including active duty, retired, selective reserve, and retired reserve, and their eligible family members, may need to keep an eye out for a few new forms to supply to their CPA, including IRS Forms 1095-C and 1095-B.
Beginning in January, 2016, DFAS will be providing 1095-C and B forms to retirees, annuitants, former spouses, and other individuals having TRICARE coverage during part or all of 2015. This form documents that you, and any applicable family members, have the minimum essential coverage. These forms will be supplied no later than January 31, 2016.
Here is something fun to ponder about the Guardianship laws. Florida Statute 744 does not specifically address the many licenses, permits, authorities, and other similar items issued by the State for all kinds of things.
For example, a pilot’s or captain’s license. If a ward has such a license, their right to fly their plane or captain their boat may not automatically be removed in a Plenary Guardianship. (And yes, we have experienced this issue.)
What about recreational licenses or permits for hunting or fishing?
Presumably, all of these should have some requirements and language baring the ward from acquiring, keeping, or using the permit, license, or authority if they have been adjudicated incapacitated, but they don’t always.
Just one more thing to think about when it comes to guardianship.
