|Health Insurance, Taxes and You||
Federal law requires individuals to have health insurance, pay a penalty, or claim an exemption. You will owe a penalty on your tax return if you or your dependents don't have health insurance for all or part of the year, unless you qualify for an exemption. An exemption is a special rule that says you don’t have to pay the penalty if you meet certain requirements. Learn more about health insurance and taxes on this page.
