There are 3 lines on the 1040 Tax form that refer to the Health Care Law. Line 46 "Excess Advance premium tax credit repayment" Fill out another form (Form 8962) if this applies to you. Line 61 "Health Care: Individual responsibility" and you fill out form 8965 if this applies to you. Most people only have to check the box on line 61 and do not need to fill out the form. Line 69 "Net premium tax credit" If this applies to you then fill out Form 8962.

IRS Warning: The IRS reminds individuals who owe the payment that it should be made only with their tax return or in response to a letter from the IRS. The payment should never be made directly to an individual or return preparer. Most people don’t owe the payment at all because they have health coverage or qualify for a coverage exemption. The IRS has received several reports of this kind of unscrupulous activity. In some cases, return preparers have told taxpayers to make the payment directly to them, even though the taxpayer had Medicaid or other health coverage and doesn’t need to make the shared responsibility payment at all. In some parts of the country, unscrupulous return preparers are targeting taxpayers with limited English proficiency and, in particular, those who primarily speak Spanish. These preparers are asking for direct payment to them, but their reasons vary. Methods include: • telling individuals that they must make an individual shared responsibility payment directly to the preparer because of their immigration status, • promising to lower the payment amount if the client pays it directly to the preparer, or • demanding money from individuals who are exempt from the individual shared responsibility payment.

Hensley, MBA, EA (You can check out Gary's blog at http://taxsolutionsforwriters.com/) Notes on the W-4: Two general examples about "tweaking the W-4" are important enough to review here: (1) You may be single and claim 1 exemption but you have other significant investment income (such as dividends, interest, or capital gains) on which no federal income tax is withheld that will be added into your tax return at the end of the year. While 1 exemption might cover the tax due on your wages, it is doubtful it will cover your investment income, so folks in this position, will usually claim zero exemptions to have more income tax taken out to also help cover the investment income. (2) You are newly married, and you and your spouse update your W-4 to claim "married" with 1 exemption. This 1 exemption could be sufficient to cover each spouse's income but when the two incomes are combined on their joint tax return, it will "push" a portion of their income into a higher tax bracket (called the "marginal tax bracket") that the withholding tables do not factor in. Thus, the newly married couple could owe a significant income tax balance at the end of the year. This married couple should consider claiming zero exemptions on their W-4's and also the option to voluntarily "add" a fixed dollar amount to their federal withholding such as $25 per paycheck. They also have the option of checking the W-4 box that says, essentially, "I am married but want my withholding deducted as if I were single." The single withholding tax table takes a larger amount of income tax at every level of income earned. INFO ABOUT THE SCHEDULE A: If you itemize deductions such as mortgage interest, property taxes, contributions, union dues, and medical expenses, those items will be included on Schedule A. Itemized deductions will ONLY be used if that total exceeds the amount of your standard deduction for your filing status. The 2013 standard deduction for a single filer is $6,100 and for married, filing jointly it is $12,200. These amounts will go up slightly for 2014 returns. Each exemption (personal and dependent) is worth $3,900 in 2013. In short, this means that a single filer, in 2013, could have income up to $10,000 ($6,100 + $3,900) and owe no income tax (thus getting a full refund of federal income taxes withheld). To get the $3,900, the single filer must not be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return.
