The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has offered a mea culpa after it mailed 800,000 incorrect tax forms for those who signed up for health insurance on HealthCare.gov for 2014.
The forms show the tax subsidy that the enrollee is entitled to; some forms overstated and others understated the amount and will be corrected and resent, HHS said today.
Meanwhile, as angry taxpayers finally see what not having an Obamacare policy will cost them on their tax filings, HHS has set up a secondary enrollment period for 2015 policies that will run from March 15 through the end of April. However, these “battlefield conversions” will still be required to pay a non-insured penalty for that part of 2015 they were uninsured come next tax season.
