Tax time is not exactly the most wonderful time of the year, but we can help make it a bit more bearable with some information about how members of health care sharing ministries should fill out their IRS Form 8965 to claim the health insurance exemption.
Members of Samaritan Ministries are exempt from the federal tax imposed on those who don’t have health insurance. To prove your qualification for this exemption in 2016, you complete the health insurance questions in your tax software or include IRS Form 8965 when you file your 2016 federal income taxes by mail.
If you’re not required to file a tax return, you don’t need to do anything to prove your exemption.
Our tax page has:
- A video explaining how to answer questions and fill out forms.
- Frequently asked questions about the ACA tax and health care sharing ministries members’ exemption.
