The ACA included an advanced premium tax credit to help qualified Americans purchasing insurance through government-sponsored marketplaces pay for coverage.
Approximately 85% of people who obtained marketplace coverage for 2014 qualified for the credit.
Credit eligibility and amount are based on several factors, including household income and number of people in the household. Estimate your eligibility with TaxACT's Health Care Tax Credit Calculator.
Uninsured Americans who don't qualify for an exemption may have to pay a penalty at tax time, starting with 2014 tax returns (due April 2015). The penalty amount depends on the number of uninsured adults and children in your household and your household income. Calculate your 2014 penalty amount with TaxACT's Health Care Tax Penalty Calculator.
