I filed my taxes and owed about $349 for the Shared Responsibility penalty. My Federal Refund was $666.00. I received $666.00 as my refund. Does that mean I do not owe or does that mean it was not deducted but I still owe it. If I owe it, how do I pay it now that I have filed and received my refund. How come no one thought about that to include on the web site.

I applied on line for my daughter and her husband so even though their own companies offer outrageous insurance plans which cost $670 through his for both and hers only offers individual at $400 for her they are not eligible for any tax subsidies since they are not using their own employer. We got insurance on marketplace for $482 for both. Not rocket science right! So why are low income families making less than the $79,000 for a family of 3 being penalized for looking for cheaper more affordable health care when they can’t afford their own employer plans? Though personally $482 when you make around $60,000 a year is not what I consider affordable health care!


where can I check to see if my Obama care was received with the irs for 2014
