New Edits for Account Distributions
When adding or changing an account distribution in SPAHRS, the system will check the new accounting distribution against the MAGIC crosswalk. When an accounting distribution is added or changed and it is not on the MAGIC crosswalk, the system will provide the error "Distribution invalid on MAGIC ACCT DIST table." Agencies will need to make the additions/corrections on the MAGIC crosswalk table prior to entering the distribution in SPAHRS. Accounting distributions that were previously established may still show up as errors in a payroll. Therefore, we suggest that you run your preliminaries early so any potential errors can be taken care of in a timely basis and not cause your payroll to be late.
Online W-2s for Tax Year 2015 are now Available in ACE
Current State employees and contract workers who have elected to receive their W-2 information online may now access their Tax Year 2015 W-2 information in ACE (Access Channel for Employees) via http://www.ms.gov.
The Department of Finance and Administration has a computer and printer available in the basement of the Woolfolk State Office building for use by State employees and contract workers in the Jackson area. Agencies are encouraged to provide internet computer access to employees who do not have computers.
If you are no longer employed with the State as of December 31, 2015, your W-2 will NOT be available in ACE; you will receive a paper W-2 through the mail.

Per the IRS:
"The deadline for insurers, other coverage providers and certain employers to provide Form 1095-B and 1095-C has been extended to March 31, 2016. Individual taxpayers will generally not be affected by this extension and should file their returns as they normally would.
It is not necessary to wait for Forms 1095-B or 1095-C in order to file.
Some taxpayers may not receive a Form 1095-B or Form 1095-C by the time they are ready to file their 2015 tax return. While the information on these forms may assist in preparing a return, they are not required. Individual taxpayers will generally not be affected by this extension and should file their returns as they normally would."
DFA does not issue tax advice and the information provided here should not be treated as such. Please consult the IRS or your tax professional if you have any questions regarding this topic.
