California Uninsured Nonresident Exemption

I am trying to file my California taxes as a nonresident--my return registers as non-resident, but I am still being held liable for being uninsured in certain months. I do not see a way to claim exemption as a nonresident. My return shows complete without addressing this...

California Uninsured Nonresident Exemption

I checked my Turbo Tax program and after completing the Health insurance information in California, the penalty was waived. I am unsure why you are being assessed a penalty. Did you live in California at any time during the year thus can be considered a part time resident.

 

To look at this in detail, we would like to see a diagnostic copy of your return. The information in this file is a sanitized copy meaning there is no personal information, only numbers so that we can troubleshoot in depth, check for calculation issues, and to see how certain items are applied. Here is how to order. 

 

For Turbo Tax online, go to tax tools>tools>share my file with agent.  When this is selected, you will receive a token number.  Respond back in this thread and tell us what that token number is. 

 

If you use the desktop version, go to the black stripe at the top of the program>online>send tax file to agent. Once you receive the token number, reply back in this thread and let us know what that token number is.

Hi Dave, 

 

Thanks for the response. I was not a resident for any part of the year, though I did visit in the state for two weeks in which I was working.

Thanks again.
