If you came to this country to live for the first time in March of 2018, you will not be penalized for January- March. To enter your information so you are exempt from the penalty take the following steps in TurboTax:

  • Click Federal
  • Click Health Insurance
  • Select I'll pick and choose which months
  • Click Continue
  • Select the Months you had insurance and click continue
  • Select Resident of a foreign country or US territory
  • Click Continue
  • You will get a message saying your penalty has been waived for those months you were not a resident.
