When Obamacare’s individual mandate takes effect in 2014, all Americans who file income tax returns must complete an additional IRS tax form.
Highlights from the Obamacare Individual Mandate Tax Compliance Form:
1. Determination of “qualifying” health insurance.
Taxpayers must demonstrate that they obtained qualifying health insurance for each month of the year in order to avoid payment of this tax penalty.
2. Disclosure of personal identifying health information.
3. Exemptions from Individual Mandate: Prisoners, Undocumented Immigrants, Welfare Recipients.
4. IRS penalties and interest on unpaid mandate taxes. Because the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate penalty is a tax, the IRS will be able to assess interest and non-criminal penalties on those families who will not or cannot pay the tax.
