On my 2019 taxes I checked no to HDHP. My HDHP was effective January 1, 2019 and continues to present Should I have received a credit for our HDHP on our 2019 tax refund?

The December 1, 2018 question is what confused me on my 2019 taxes, so I checked no to HDHP, when in fact I had HDHP throughout 2019.

Yes, you should have answered yes if you had coverage for the entire year of 2019.  I'm not sure what you mean by getting a credit.

 

The federal tax penalty for not being enrolled in health insurance was eliminated in 2019. The prior tax penalty for not having health insurance in 2018 was $695 for adults and $347.50 for children or 2% of your yearly income, whichever amount was more.

This mistake would only affect your taxes if you made contributions to an HSA in 2019 (including payroll matches or free money from your employer).  If you made contributions, and did not check that you had a qualifying plan, you would have been subject to additional taxes and penalties.  You may want to amend your 2019 return.

 

If you had no contributions to any HSA in 2019, then this mistake did not affect your taxes.
