If you did not have health insurance in 2014, be prepared to pay a penalty when you file your 2014 income taxes next April.
If the penalty for not being covered in 2014 did not seem too high, brace yourself for the dollar amount to rise next year, and the year after.
Here are the penalty amounts for 2014, 2015, and 2016:
|$95 per adult
$47.50 per child
Family Maximum of $285 OR 1% household income, whichever is GREATER
|$325 per adult
$162.50 per child
Family Maximum of $975 OR 2% household income, whichever is GREATER
|$695 per adult
$347.50 per child
Family Maximum of $2,085 OR 2.5% of household income, whichever is GREATER
