Bev Warnecke: A good ACA experience

My daughter in San Francisco was ecstatic when I prepared her 2014 tax return. After putting info into Turbo Tax from her 1095A Health Insurance Market Place Statement, up popped a credit of almost $1,500. Seems she paid too much health care premiums based on her self-employment income. Much of the problem people seem to be having this year is in the reporting of their health care.

In order to avoid the penalty, you do not have to purchase health insurance on the California Marketplace. Your health insurance can be purchased from any source. And while we are limited to health insurance providers in Nevada County, my insurance agent found me a very good Medicare Supplemental Insurance Plan F that is just at $90 a quarter for age 79.

If you feel your tax preparer has not properly reported your health insurance and you were penalized when you actually had health insurance, you can file an amended return.
