CBO: Four Million Americans to Pay Obamacare Tax

Four million American taxpayers will be forced to pay the Obamacare individual mandate non-compliance tax in 2016, according to a newly released analysis by the Congressional Budget Office.

The report, titled Payments of Penalties for Being Uninsured Under the Affordable Care Act: 2014 Update, includes a gingerly-worded reminder ​that Americans will be liable for the tax as part of their annual tax-filing process:

“Among the uninsured people subject to the penalty, many are expected to voluntarily report on their tax returns that they are uninsured and to pay the amount owed.”

The CBO data also show that the overwhelming majority of those liable for the are part of low-to-middle income households, a clear violation of President Obama’s promise against “any form of tax increase” on Americans making less than $250,000 per year.
