The Internal Revenue Service this week will publish a final rule requiring Obamacare health insurance exchanges to hand over key personal data to the IRS, which they will use the information to implement the tax aspects of the controversial health care law.
The IRS rule covers health exchanges that sell insurance to individuals, and it takes effect this year. That means people enrolled in an Obamacare exchange this year will have their information given to the IRS as soon as it’s needed for tax purposes.
Information to be handed over from Obamacare exchanges includes names, addresses, taxpayer identification numbers, insurance premium amounts, the name of the insurance issuer, and the insurance plan policy number issued by the exchanges.
The IRS says this data is needed to assess whether people are eligible for a health insurance tax credit. “This tax credit can help make purchasing health insurance coverage more affordable for people with moderate incomes,” according to the IRS.
The rule is being published amid ongoing concerns about data security, and after the troubled launch of the healthcare.gov website that exposed many technical glitches. Those issues have some worried that the personal data people give to the exchanges will be at risk.
House Republicans have passed a few bills aimed at addressing this potential problem. In January, for example, the House passed the Exchange Information Disclosure Act, which would require the government to tell people whenever their personal information has been compromised.
Republicans have also passed legislation requiring weekly updates from the administration on how the law is being implemented, including details about website glitches.
Let's not forget that many people opt to have their returns deposited into their bank accounts, therefore the Feds will have account info in the event they wish to seize your account.
A word of wisdom to anyone affiliated with the IRS. Keep your identity secrete while you search for a new career, that is if there are any careers left after Obama's rein.
Tyranny opens a new door using all government agencies against the people. At what point can we rise and say this is enough. It is coming.
“WE WANT GOD” is an answer to the stress in our country. The stress exists because organized atheism is bullying Organized Christianity. When this same stress existed in the Soviet Union, Christians began standing up to atheism on June 2, 1979, by saying in unison “We Want God.” Because of that stance, they caused the Soviet Union to collapse within ten years, marking the end of organized atheism in the governing bodies of Eastern Europe. Peggy Noonan documented that story in the Wall Street Journal under the title “We Want God.”
The regime of organized atheism ruled in Eastern Europe for more than 40 years, using oppressive bureaucracies and armed forces to impose its rule. In the United States of America, the many factions of organized atheism are abusing the rule of law to chip away at the religious freedoms traditionally enjoyed by Organized Christianity. This process of ‘death by a thousand cuts’ is sanctioned, even encouraged, by a regime that is imposing the rule of Big Government on our country through the use of oppressive bureaucracies. So far, this process does not include the use of armed forces.
You and I and all like-minded people in our own country can also stand up to the bullying of organized atheism. We can say in unison “We Want God,” and we can say it as we decide whom to vote for on November 4, 2014. This November, elect only those candidates whom you can trust to become servants of the people, not bullies of the people. Elect only those candidates whom you can trust to take Big Government Bureaucracy out of our homes and out of our private lives.
Stand up to the bullies. Tell them “We Want God.”
WE WANT GOD!!!!!
F. Denny, That is a very good point !! But the so-called, 'Christian Church' in Amerika is SICK, lazy, sleeping, and sorry to say: COWARDLY !!! Not to worry, Father God in heaven will WAKE THE CHURCH UP !! Being a life long, serious student of the KJV Bible, I know this will happen, and in the near future ! Right now, there is noting more standing in the way of the Rapture to come. We are only waiting for that exact "number" to be fulfilled, and then Jesus Christ will call His Followers up to a very safe place, BEFORE all hell breaks loose on Earth. 'Don't be left behind.' Don't go to heaven alone, either... take some one with you ! See: The KJV Bible: biblefortoday.org Also: TOM'S JOURNAL. My email: firstname.lastname@example.org -- Disabled Vietnam Vet: 68-70.
I believe many religious people have been brainwashed to believe that they are God's pet gold fish put here to swim around and ignore their problems and wait for Jesus to fix everything. If you sin its because your made a sinner. If you do something out of your self proclaimed good moral character its because Satan influenced you to do it. If you don't blindly believe in something full inconsistencies that doesn't make any sense that has changed many times in translations then you will burn in hell for all of eternity. I'm sorry but that doesn't sound like love to me and if I am wrong I am willing to except my eternal burning damnation because a God that would burn his children for not blindly saying they believe in something that doesn't make any sense is not my God. I have been blessed with a strong mind and will and I don't think it was for no reason. I am not a pet gold fish and I will fight for what I know is right. I will not fear what evil can do to me in this world. This world is just a stage and the the only thing we take with us is what we have done here. Think of our children and their future and find the strength inside to see truth in order to make balance. Good, bad, strong, weak, misguided we are all a part of this world and have the potential to do what is right. Wouldn't it be a devastating deception for the devil to convince people that they are sinners and the only thing they can do is nothing but except that, and to except salvation and they get to go to heaven.
while obamacare will continue to fail under its own complicated weight...the irs aspects will grow into more of a destructive agency with this power...and will be abused by the government in its regulatory over reach unless somebody stops it altogether...so if they prevent your political organization from getting a tax exempt status....they will also have you by the short hairs, because of obamacare.
ENOUGH OF YOUR DAMN TAXES! We need to REDUCE TAXES NOT CREATE MORE! I am so sick of this money grabbing government. 95% of these taxes are not accountable for anything. I hope May 16th when Citizens invade DC they make known all. I will be going to our state house. It's time for CHANGE to the good of the country and it's CITIZENS, not illegals.
How many bills can be passed? There is no way to keep up with all the bills. The Framers did not intend so many laws to be written. Just follow the Constitution you stupid people and you won't have to write all these illegal and unlawful bills. No one is going to follow them. No one of importance, that is.
I have 3 pitch forks, a metal rake, an axe, machette, and 3 log splitters. Now come and get me.
"IF" ANYONE BOTHERED TO READ THAT OVER 2700 PAGES OF PURE COMMUNIST DICTATOR CREATOR PAGES OF OBAMACARE, ONE WOULD DISCOVER THAT THE BILL IS NOT ABOUT HEALTH CARE AT ALL, IT IS A COMMUNIST DICTATOR MENIFESTO TO BY PASS ALL CONSTITUTIONAL LAWS IN THE CREATION OF A COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP! AS NUTTY NANCY PELOSI SAID, "WE HAVE TO PASS IT TO SEE WHAT'S IN IT!" WELL CONGRATULATIONS AMERICA, YOUR "PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST" (COMMUNIST) SENATE JUST VOTED IN "COMMUNISM" WITH THE FULL BLESSINGS OF AN ILLEGAL DECISION OF A "FIXED" OBAMA ASS KISSING SUPREME COURT! ISN'T YOUR NEW COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP "AMERIKA" GREAT!
That was a given as soon as we found out that the IRS was to administer Baboonzo care
