It’s tax time — be on the lookout for your W-2 and 1095-C forms

By now you should be able to access your Form W-2 in myUFL or the ONE.UF application, or you should soon be receiving it in the mail if you did not give consent to access it electronically. In addition to filing your W-2, the IRS requires reporting of health insurance coverage information for the 2023 federal income tax reporting year. While it is not necessary to include the Form 1095-C with your tax return, you’ll need to include your insurance information on your tax return.

A newly announced multidisciplinary strategic sports initiative is the latest in a mind-blowing series of proposed endeavors put into motion over the last several months through President Sasse’s strategic funding initiative. And that’s just scratching the surface…
