Tax Penalties and Health Care
Cedar Rapids, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) - The tax deadline has now passed, but accountants can't take a break quite yet - they're busy looking into health insurance and what it means for your taxes next year. Americans without minimum essential health coverage will face a tax penalty next year.
A single person making $30,000 a year would have to pay about $199 or about one percent of income over the tax filing. For someone making $50,000 dollars a year the penalty is around $399.
The penalty will keep growing each year.
