Got help paying for health care? Watch your mailbox
WASHINGTON (AP) -- If you're among the millions of consumers who got government subsidies for health insurance last year under President Barack Obama's law, watch your mailbox.
The administration says it has started sending out tax reporting forms you'll need to fill out for your 2014 return. They're like W-2s for health care.
Called 1095-A, the forms are for people who got health insurance tax credits. They list how much the government paid each month to subsidize your premiums. You'll need to make sure it's right and report it to the IRS.
It's the first time that Americans will experience the complex connections between the health care law and taxes. So there's concern that some people may not realize the new forms are important, and that they do need to open that envelope.
