Obamacare is the train wreck that keeps on wrecking:

About 800,000 HealthCare.gov customers got the wrong tax information from the government, the Obama administration said Friday, and officials are asking those affected to delay filing their 2014 returns.

The tax mistake is a self-inflicted injury that comes on the heels of what President Barack Obama had touted as a successful enrollment season, with about 11.4 million people signed up. [Amazing what a high volume of product you can move when the purchase is mandatory – DP]

California, which is running its own insurance market, on Thursday announced a similar problem affecting about 100,000 people in that state.

The errors mean that nearly 1 million people may have to wait longer to get their income tax refunds this year. And they could also affect the size of those refunds.

Another 50,000 or so who already filed may have to resubmit their returns.

800,000 incorrect forms amounts to approximately one-fifth of the Obamacare-related forms sent out, which means a known accuracy rate of 80 percent. Or in Obama administration terms: Nailed it!

If you got the incorrect tax information, just follow these simple steps from the HHS:

Most people received a correct Form 1095-A. However, if we contact you because your Form 1095-A is incorrect, here’s why. Some forms included the monthly premium amount of the second lowest cost Silver plan for 2015 instead of 2014, which needs to be corrected. The incorrect amount is listed in Part III, Column B of the Form 1095-A. We’re working quickly to resolve this and any other issues with the 1095-A forms. This does not mean that your tax credit was incorrect; this is purely an error in what was printed on the form.

At Health & Human Services HQ they’re working hard to resolve the problem:


Meanwhile, let’s make sure somebody without a college degree doesn’t get elected to higher office because something might get screwed up!
