Health coverage Exemption: Do you qualify?
Now that it is during tax filing season and the Affordable Care Act requires each member of your family to do at least one of these:
-Have qualifying health converge called minim essential coverage
-Qualify for a health coverage exemption
-Make a shared responsibility payment using your federal income tax return for the months that you did not have coverage or an exemption for.
You may be exempt from the requirement to have minimum essential coverage if you meet certain criteria. If this applies to you, you will file Form 8965, along with your federal income tax return. Federal tax returns that do not report health care coverage, claim a coverage exemption or report a shared responsibility payment will be rejected if filed electronically. Tax returns that do not reflect one of these options and are filed on paper, will be delayed.
