Affordable Care Act - Remains the same for 2018 as 2017 tax year.  The repel of the uninsured penalty will take effect for tax year 2019.

 Mandating insurance remains the same for all of us when we file our 2018 taxes in 2019.

Everyone who is required to file a tax return will have to provide us proof of insurance for the entire year or an exemption certificate from the insurance company for one of several reasons. You will need to provide us the hardship case exemption certificate mailed to you from the Market Place Insurance.  Visit website for details on obtaining this certificate, your taxes cannot be started without it and it can take up to 4 weeks to receive. If you haven’t received it, start the process NOW. We cannot start your tax return without this exemption form, (not our ruling).

 Congress is continuing the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.   Penalties can be charge to all of us.

You are required to bring us proof of insurance, forms 1095A, 1095B and/or 1095C.  Your Social Security Benefit statement indicating Medicare A / Medicare C (known as Medicare Advantage), Medicaid coverage and/or Form 1095-A from insurance company if purchased on Market Place and you either received or are entitle to receive the Premium Tax Credit (PTC).

Non-custodian parent needs proof of dependent coverage either from employer provided insurance or obtain copy of Form 1095-A mailed to the custodian parent. 

NOTE: It is impossible to calculate this via phone or e-mail. Because of the complicated individual circumstance only the tax preparers are able to answer questions. Please schedule an office appointment to discuss your case. An advance fee will be charged, (cash or debit only) and paid prior to the meeting. If we complete the filing of your taxes we will apply the fee to your total invoice.

We welcome the opportunity to speak to you and answer questions and or concerns regarding your personal situations. The office managers are not trained to discuss your options or pricing, due to complexity.
