NASHP Blogs about Taxes and the ACA

NASHP: The National Academy for State Health Policy blogged about the new ACA-related tax forms and filing requirements for individuals who purchased coverage through a marketplace and received financial assistance. The post and accompanying cheat sheet offer background on each of the new tax forms, who needs to file the forms, and consequences for incorrect filings. Uninsured individuals who missed open enrollment this year may still have a chance to sign up for coverage and avoid tax penalties in 2016 thanks to a special enrollment period recently enacted by some states and the Federally-facilitated Marketplace (FFM).
