Treasury issues reprieve for health law tax errors
Modern Healthcare

The Treasury Department says it is offering a reprieve for some taxpayers affected by healthcare law errors.

A senior Treasury official told the Associated Press on Tuesday that taxpayers who have already filed returns with errors affecting their healthcare subsidies will not be required to resubmit corrected returns.

That would save time, effort, and any additional tax preparation fees for an estimated 50,000 people who may have already filed returns with erroneous details supplied by another government department.
