Tax Refunds to Take a Hit Thanks to Obamacare

Health care premiums could eliminate your tax refund


Obamacare recipients could receive less money from tax refunds next year.

Tax refundsHealth care premiums tied to the Affordable Care Act may give you a headache come tax season. Tax refunds could be reduced or eliminated entirely if your 2014 income is lower than you estimated it to be when you applied for Obamacare.

Laws connected to the health care plan affect the amount of money you’ll receive from tax refunds. Unless you change your estimated income for the year on to reflect your new salary, part of that income will go to Obamacare.
