DEADLINE FOR TEXAS NONSUBSCRIBER FORM 5 FILING IS APRIL 30TH
The DWC Form-005 is a recently revised form that provides notification of an employer’s status as a Texas nonsubscriber to the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation (TDI-DWC), with whom the Form DWC-005 must be filed.
Texas nonsubscribers are required to file the DWC Form-005 annually between February 1st and April 30th of each calendar year as long as the employer remains in operation and does not have workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
The DWC Form-205, Locations of Employer’s Business(es), is filed as an attachment to the DWC Form-005 for those employers with more than one location.
An employer that fails to comply with the filing requirement is subject to an administrative violation and penalties pursuant to Texas Labor Code.
The DWC Form 005, Employer Notice of No Coverage or Termination of Coverage, DWC Form-007, Non-covered Employer’s Report of Occupational Injury or Illness and the DWC Form-205, Locations of Employer’s Business(es) are available here.
