Why is there a penalty for not having health insurance?
The Affordable Care Act requires that everyone have health insurance coverage through a qualified insurance plan. If you did not have health insurance or had a lapse in coverage at any time during the year 2014, you might have to pay a fine.
How much will I have to pay?
If you didn’t have coverage in 2014, you’ll pay the higher of these two amounts when you file your 2014 federal tax return:
- 1% of your yearly taxable household income.
- $95 per person for the year ($47.50 per child under 18). The maximum penalty per family using this method is $285.
