I'm referring to the 2017 tax year (Jan 17-dec17 filed April 18)
My CPA for 10 years is telling me there is a fine this year for not having health coverage. Multiple other people i know who used h&r block, etc are telling me they didn't have to pay one.
I looked on the 1040ez and it says right there that you do have a fine. But they are claiming it's not relevant due to an executive order.
My understanding is there is no mandate to prove you had insurance. But you are still lying on your taxes if you don't disclose it and pay the fine.
