Health Care is mandatory for all to avoid substantial financial penalties.. Penalties will be collected via income tax refunds.
If you or some-one in your family had health cov-erage in 2015, the provider of that coverage is required to send a Form 1095-A, 1095-B, or 1095-C (with Part III completed) by January 31, 2016, that lists individuals in your family who were enrolled in the coverage and shows their months of coverage. Use this infor-mation to help complete your re-turn.
