As a member of a healthcare sharing ministry, please keep the below information in mind when filing your taxes this year.
Beginning with the 2019 tax year and beyond, per the IRS, the 1040 will not have the “Full-year health care coverage or exempt box”. In addition, Form 8965 will no longer be used.
If you are filing for 2018 and prior tax years – the "Shared Responsibility Payment" requirement is still in effect.
Members of Health Care Sharing Ministries are exempt from individual state mandates, please refer to your state's tax information for details.
If you have questions regarding your state and its health insurance mandate for the tax year 2020, please consult your local tax advisor for guidance on filing the appropriate forms, correctly and completely.
