This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and TurboTax, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #TurboTaxACA http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
Getting a tax return is not fun for anyone – especially people like me who aren’t very good at math and legal-ease. I put my trust in using a simplified tool like TurboTax that asks you the necessary questions in a way that’s easy to understand.
Now that there’s the new healthcare part with this brand new 1095A sheet that gets mailed to you if you subscribe to healthcare.gov. If you are an Insured Filers (meaning you have your health insurance through employment) all you have to do is click yes to the “Are you insured through employment” question at the beginning of the process and you’re all set. Then of course there’s the Marketplace Insured Filers and the Uninsured Filers.
Quite honestly, at first thought of doing taxes this year I was a little discouraged because I had just gotten the hang of doing it myself. I feel like this year, I’ve been thrown a curve ball and I’ll never get it figured out now! However, TurboTax has that whole aspect covered and makes it a snap to breeze right through it. Again, just answer the questions… And it will do the rest for you!
So basically, all you need to do is fill in the blanks with the information that healthcare.gov provided you with on your 1095A form. Easy peasy!
This weekend, open enrollment for healthcare this year is ending on February 15th – so make sure you get some health coverage if you need it before then, or you may face a penalty on your taxes next year. Some will be exempted from such penalties, so be sure to check out TurboTaxHealth.com to see for sure. If you know you’re going to file 1040A/EZ, consider completing your taxes at TurboTax.com before February 16th and file for FREE!
