HEALTH INSURANCE UPDATE:
DID YOU KNOW?
Beginning with tax returns filed for the year 2014, compliance with the new health care law will be achieved, in part, through the preparation and filing of income tax returns. Tax preparers will be required to report whether taxpayers have insurance and the effective date of insurance. If you do not have insurance, the federally mandated penalties will be deducted from your refund or added to your taxes owed. We anticipate tax preparation fees will increase to meet this additional reporting requirement.
Do you always owe Ohio? If you update your state withholding you may eliminate this issue. Don’t change the number of exemptions, just have a little extra taken out each paycheck. All you need to do is submit a completed IT-4 to your employer. Check with your tax preparer/accountant to make sure this is the best option for your situation.
