Direct Deposit Scam

- Monday, February 25, 2019

We have been notified about a scam, successful at another Vermont School, involving direct deposit. Therefore, we will only accept hard copies of the direct deposit form when you wish to make a change. Sorry for the inconvenience. 

 

HSA 1099 SA

- Friday, February 01, 2019

If you've spend HSA money: HealthEquity sends the 1099-SA in the mail, postmarked no later than January 31. You can also view your tax documents online by following these steps:

  1. In the HealthEquity member portal, select 'Tax Forms' from the 'Docs & Forms' tab.

  2. Locate the section for Form 1099-SA.

  3. Select the tax year you wish to view from the dropdown menu.

 

W2's & 1095s

- Friday, January 25, 2019

These forms are being delivered to the schools this week. (casual employees forms will be mailed).

Some Reminders:

The W2 wage reflects a calendar year, contracts reflect a fiscal year; Your taxable wage may be reduced by pre-tax deductions, such as your share of health insurance.

The 1095 shares whether you were offered insurance (whether you took it or not). It also shares if you and or family members were covered and for which months (BCBS did this part last year). The rates you see reflect only monthly amounts for a single health plan, again; regardless if or what tier plan you were enrolled in. 

Direct W2 questions to Brianne at bking@maplerun.org

Direct 1095 questions to Germaine at gcross@maplerun.org

Rollover FSA & LPFSA Funds

- Wednesday, January 02, 2019

If you may have a balance in your 2018 FSA, those monies are not available until the "run out period" of 60 days is complete - this is the time frame for which 2018 expenses can be submitted. Once that run out period concludes, and it can be determined exactly what is available for rollover (up to $500), the FSA will become active to use those funds in 2019.

Paying your Medical Bills

- Thursday, November 01, 2018

While we cannot know the procedures for all providers, I did have a conversation today with NMC. They do not send anything to collections unless it is more than 120 days old. If you have a significant bill there and feel you may not have it paid off by then, CALL THEM. They will change your status to a payment plan and you'll be all set. Like with so many things, communication is key. NMC Billing: 524-1065. If you want to you can speak with Lisa Cornforth directly. 

Note that NMC's billing practices do pertain to many of their Dr's services as well. 

 

AOE Employer Listing

Health Deductions are rounded

- Tuesday, August 28, 2018

You will notice that for ease of accounting and reconciliation your health insurance deductions have been rounded to the nearest dollar.

 

LTD Imputed

- Tuesday, August 28, 2018

You will notice that an LTD deduction comes out and right back into each paycheck. That is so you pay a few cents tax on it. This is a little different from the old way of doing things where we deducted it all year then reimbursed you. This way is better for you and us as you don't have the deduction and we can make sure the amounts are exact. Questions, email Germaine Cross.

 

Paycheck for 8/30

- Tuesday, August 28, 2018

Some of you will notice some differences. The new insurance rates are effective so those rates may have changed for you. Those rate changes affect your taxes. School year support staff did not have deductions this paycheck; those will happen with the next check. Also see the LTD announcements and more.  Remember, there are columns for your deductions and the employer contribution. If, after you review your pay you have any questions for Brianne or I, please email.
