united states coast guard

The IRS Forms W2, 1099R, 1095B and 1095C are now available in Direct Access Self Service. The forms will be mailed, to those who haven't opted out of receiving hard copies, no later than 31 January 2018. The forms are now produced on standard 8 1/2 x 11 paper and mailed in a standard, privacy tinted window envelope. The envelope will have a PPC's return address and the form is printed with the text "Important Tax Information Enclosed" which shows through the window on the envelope.

Tax forms can be viewed and printed using Direct Access Self-Service. Follow the procedures in the user guides linked below:

The Personnel and Pay Procedures Manual, PPCINST M1000.2 (series), section 8.B.6.9, contains guidance for requesting a corrected IRS Form W-2. Report W-2 discrepancies to PPC (SEP) via your responsible Personnel and Administration (P&A) Office. The P&A Office must notify PPC (SEP) via Customer Care trouble ticket of the suspected error with applicable supporting documentation and calculations. Refer to the State Tax Withholding Exceptions prior to submitting a request for W-2 correction as Direct Access collects Federal and State tax based on member election.

Corrections to the IRS Form 1095 can only be made by the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) through the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS). Members must go to an ID card facility to have information updated in DEERS. PPC will produce corrected forms once received from DMDC and will deliver to the member according to the delivery method elected.
