No matter what your stance is about The Affordable Care Act (ACA), the fact is that it affects a lot of Americans. This will be the second year that Americans will be reporting their health insurance on their taxes. It may sound difficult and like something else we need to worry about, but it really does not have to be that complicated. Combining The Affordable Care Act & your taxes does not have to cause more stress in your life.
I had some big life changes over the past couple of years. I had a baby and I decided I would quit my job to stay home with her. It was not an easy decision, in fact it was pretty scary. In the process I also started two separate streams of income for myself, this blog and becoming an FBA seller. I enjoy doing both of these things and I love the fact that they allow me to work from home so that I can watch my daughter grow.
Since I didn’t have my employer’s health insurance anymore, I had to sign up for health insurance using The Affordable Care Act. It was pretty straight forward and simple to do. I was a little unsure about what to expect before I signed up, though.
It is now open enrollment and if you are having to sign up for health insurance using The Affordable Care Act, Turbo Tax has you covered. They have all kinds of free tools to help you figure out your best options. I love the Subsidy Calculator because it can help you figure out if you may qualify for a subsidy before you even begin the sign up process.
