One of the easiest steps of preparing Form 1095-B is to gather the information of the 1095-B issuer. This will include their TIN information and a point of contact for any recipient questions.
Like recipient TIN information, issuer TINs should be verified before the filings are submitted. Tools such as TINCorrect can help to make sure the information you have matches with IRS records. It is crucial to ensure you have the most updated information as soon as possible in order to prevent potential penalties from the IRS.
Make sure to provide your recipients with a working phone number or other contact option that is available during regular hours in the event they have questions about their Form 1095-B. The point of contact should be adequately staffed and prepared to address any questions or concerns that the recipients may have.
