Health insurance

If you don't have health coverage you may be penalized. However, you may avoid the penalty if you qualify for an exemption. TurboTax asks questions during the health insurance interview to see if any of the available exemptions apply to you.

 

Note: If you have a filing requirement you should file a tax return, even if you think you'll be penalized for not having health insurance. You don't want an additional penalty for failing to file.
