Taxation without representation.
Don’t worry, just tell them that your hard disk drive crashed and you will get around to it eventually.
They’ll postpone it. That was their intent when they created the law, to be able to change it at will.
Squeezing money out of the poor and desperate. It’s a sound strategy — the poor and desperate will go running to the polls to vote for Democrats so that they can get more “free stuff”.
One of these days they will realize why they are so poor and desperate — but so far that day has not come.
good luck with that
The law states that the only way the IRS can collect fines is to seize income tax refunds. If you play your cards right and end up not having a refund or owing a small amount, there is nothing the IRS can do.
What happens if you can’t afford it? I’d rather have a cookie.
Take it out of their EBT accounts. We are at war with obesity anyhoo.
isn't this the part of the ACA that Judge Roberts called a tax?

You can’t squeeze blood out of an unemployed rock.

Since Roberts decided it was a tax, will we be able to deduct the cost of insurance on our tax returns?
Apparently they have the ability to change the law at their whim.
