  1. Did not get insurance this year. I went to market place to find info on the penalty exemption. It says to fill out a hardship form and mail in 2 weeks before filling taxes. If approved they will send me a number to put on my tax forms. Will turbo tax have a place to put the number when I fill out my taxes this year?

    • Hi Tyler,
      TurboTax will support all the various requiements of the ACA for individuals, including the penalty exemption.

    • You should be able to apply on your marketplace for coverage. The subsidy will be dependent on your household income and the coverage you have.

    • The subsidy is dependent on your household income and your coverage. You should qualify to purchase coverage on the exchange because of your life event, but you will have to calculate your subsidy based on your income for the year.

    • Andrea,
      Subsidies require that you meet income requirements (household income must be between 100% and 400% of the poverty level for your state), and purchase your insurance through the exchange.
