We have posted a 2014 Health Care Organizer on the Tools for Tax Pros section of our website. The organizer is designed to give to your tax clients (or use as a source of questions to ask clients during the tax interview) so that they can provide all of the necessary information concerning the requirement to have health insurance for the 2014 tax year. Depending upon the answers, the organizer directs you to where you can find more information concerning a question. For those who have TheTaxBook Health Care Edition for 2014, the line-by-line instructions for the forms referenced in the organizer can be found in Tab 1.
