Feds Send Out 800,000 Incorrect ObamaCare Tax Forms
First Uncle Bear, now Uncle Sam.
“The Obama administration says it sent about 800,000 HealthCare.gov customers the wrong tax information, and officials are asking those consumers to delay filing their 2014 taxes,” reports CNBC.
The massive blunder comes on the heels of a similar admission by California officials that the state sent out approximately 100,000 error-laden tax forms to residents using the state’s ObamaCare exchange, Covered California.
No timeline was apparent on when revised forms would be sent out, or whether early tax filers would be penalized by the Internal Revenue Service for submitting unknowingly false information.
Another item in the CNBC report may foreshadow the next move. Due to concerns that some people will be angered for being penalized for not buying insurance to comply with ObamaCare’s coverage mandate, the Obama administration is creating another sign-up extension.
Perhaps the IRS will get similar instructions from on high and bump back the filing deadline.
If so, expect to hear the millions of non-ObamaCare customers clamor, “Me too!”
