11 Jun 2014 Feds Can Fine You $25,000-$250,000 for Putting Wrong Information on ObamaCare Signup Forms
Whoops! If you are one of those sneaky people who thought you could get a higher ObamaCare subsidy by lying a teensy little bit (or more) about your income when you signed up for ObamaCare, you’ll want to come clean and start being honest.
If you made an innocent mistake on your forms, you can rest easy: the penalty for innocent mistakes is only $25,000.
Some say the government is unlikely to penalize many people for improper forms, but that’s just a guess, and justice under this administration appears to be selective. Also worth noting: You don’t get a trial. The Department of Health and Human Services decides if you are guilty and gives you sixty days to appeal a notice from them that you are guilty. If you do appeal HHS then decides if you are right — or they are. If you are thinking that’s not a very objective way to handle things, you’re right.
