Archive - tax year 2022

In 2023, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax season officially started on January 23. For tax year 2022, we want to remind you it is no longer necessary to fill out specific tax forms indicating that, as a member of a health care sharing ministry, you are exempt from the ACA mandate to have insurance. Furthermore, you are not required to claim an exemption, provide documentation of your membership, make a shared responsibility payment, or obtain an Exemption Certificate Number for your federal tax return. Please check below to see if your state has its own insurance mandate requirements.

This year’s tax donation letters (documenting your 2022 donations) were sent out on January 30, 2023.

Funds you are assigned to send to other members and to Samaritan Ministries for administrative purposes are only considered tax deductible if you are filing with the State of Missouri. We are not aware of any other state where this is the case.

Visit our Donate to Samaritan Ministries page to see ways in which you can make tax-deductible donations to the ministry.

In tax year 2022, there are special tax considerations in seven states for health care sharing ministry members.

These states include:

California
Massachusetts
Missouri
New Jersey
Rhode Island
Vermont
Washington, D.C.
