Can I avoid paying the health insurance penalty in 2019?

Good news! The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (also known as tax reform) eliminated the Affordable Care Act penalty on federal tax returns. However, some states and jurisdictions will continue to assess their own penalty—specifically New Jersey, Massachusetts, and the District of Columbia. If you live in one of these states, contact your Department of Revenue for more information about ways you can avoid paying the health insurance penalty.
