Is it true that the IRS will accept a tax return even if it does not state the filer’s health coverage status?
Yes, the IRS was set, for the first time this tax season to reject tax returns that did not include the filer’s health coverage status, but consistent with President Trump’s executive order seeking to minimize the burden of complying with ACA provisions, the IRS has decided to accept “silent” returns, those that do not state the filer’s health coverage status.
However, the individual mandate is still the law and individuals are expected to pay the penalty if they did not have required healthcare coverage during 2016. Additionally, this decision does not prevent the IRS from asking for proof of coverage at a later date and from assessing penalties if the filer did not maintain the required coverage.
