Will You Being Paying a Penalty for Having No Health Insurance?
There are many misunderstandings about the new government health insurance requirements. 2014 began a new set of regulations. Beginning this year, if you are without health insurance then you will be charged a penalty tax. The penalty varies but for 2014 it will start at $95 a person and go up from there depending on your income. Each year will have an increased penalty amount. 2015 starts at $325 a person with increases based on income. More specifics on penalty amounts can be found at https://www.healthcare.gov/fees-exemptions/fee-for-not-being-covered/.
There is some good news right now! 2015 open enrollment for the healthcare exchange will begin on November 15th.
