THEIRSThe tax penalty for not having minimum essential health insurance for yourself and other members of your tax family takes a substantial jump in 2015.
If you didn’t get health insurance coverage this year, you may be subject to a penalty unless you qualify for one of the many general or hardship exemptions.
In general, beginning January 1, 2015, employers with at least 100 full-time and full-time-equivalent employees must offer affordable health coverage that provides minimum value to at least 95% of their full-time employees and their dependents or they may be subject to an employer shared responsibility payment. This payment applies only if at least one of the employer’s full-time employees qualifies for a premium tax credit through enrollment in a government Health Insurance Marketplace.
If you are enrolled in insurance coverage through a government Health Insurance Marketplace, it is important that you report certain changes to the marketplace when they happen, such as changes to your household income or family size and other issues that affect your eligibility for and the amount of the advance premium tax credit
