Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues…

I had health insurance coverage throughout this year, so I shouldn’t have to pay a penalty for being uninsured? Do I have to do anything else to make sure?

When you file your return for this tax year (usually people do this next spring), there will be a space for you to indicate that you had health insurance coverage for the full year.   If you did not have health coverage for the entire year, there will be directions to help you calculate the tax penalty or to indicate that you owe no penalty if you qualify for an exemption.
