The Washington Examiner notes that as the tax deadline rapidly approaches “…. many Americans are unaware Obamacare’s tax penalty goes into effect this year — or that they have extra time to sign up for coverage.” The Kaiser Family Foundation recently released a polling which reports approximately one in five Americans believe that the penalty applies to next year’s filing. The Washington Examiner explains, “If people are penalized, it’s because they lacked health coverage last year and didn’t qualify for an exemption from the healthcare law’s requirement to buy insurance. Even if they buy coverage this year, that wouldn’t erase the penalty they’d have to pay for lacking coverage last year.” Once again, many Americans appear to be behind the eight ball when it comes to Obamacare, and they are set for a big surprise come tax day.
