Level 10

State tax filing

If you use TurboTax to complete your California return and tell it that you had health insurance all year, Form 3895 will not be filed with your California return.  The form is simiilar to federal Form 8962 which is used to determine the premium tax credit for people who purchase medical insurance through the marketplace.  If you have form 1095-A and enter it in the federal return, the information will flow to CA Form 3895.

There is no longer a federal penalty for not having health insurance, but California does impose a penalty in some cases.
