Before tax reform was passed, if you did not have health insurance coverage or qualify for an exemption, you were required to pay a penalty on your tax return. In 2016, as many as 4 million taxpayers paid the penalty.
Many states will be assessing the penalty on taxpayers without health insurance so check with your state on their requirements.
