IRS Enforcement of ACA Individual Penalty

Recommended Posts

IRS permitted individuals to file 2016 tax returns without answering the ACA penalty question (so if you owed the penalty you didn't have to fess up and pay with your tax return).

Have they done any follow up with those taxpayers or does it appear nobody had to pay for 2016?

I know they keep saying the penalty is still in effect but wondering if enforcement has slacked off.

Typically, the IRS does not start sending out CP2000 notices until well into the second year.

So if there is going to be any enforcement actions for 2016, they wouldn't typically show up until well into 2018 at the earliest.

After all, we haven't even passed the extended filing date.
