IRS Posts Enforcement Notices for 2014 Obamacare Extortion Payments

How warm and fuzzy to call extortion a “shared responsibility payment”.

ex·tor·tion [ik-stawr-shuhn]

noun

1. an act or instance of extorting.
2. Law. the crime of obtaining money or some other thing of value by the abuse of one’s office orauthority.
3. oppressive or illegal exaction, as of excessive price or interest: the extortions of usurers.
4. anything extorted.

(source)

The mobsters agents at the IRS have warned Americans that on their 2014 tax returns, they’ll be asked about their health insurance coverage.

Your 2014 tax return will ask if you had insurance coverage or qualified for an exemption.  If not, you may owe a shared responsibility payment when you file in 2015. (source)

Doesn’t that sound much nicer than, “If you can’t afford to pay, we’ll fine you because you can’t afford to pay”? The public relations folks for the IRS must have worked overtime on coming up with the term “shared responsibility payment” because this fits the textbook legal definition of extortion.

The Mafia IRS is careful to make certain that you are aware you “need to pay” this.

If you (or any of your dependents) do not maintain coverage and do not qualify for an exemption, you will need to make an individual shared responsibility payment with your return. In general, the payment amount is either a percentage of your income or a flat dollar amount, whichever is greater. You will owe 1/12th of the annual payment for each month you (or your dependents) do not have coverage and are not exempt. The annual payment amount for 2014 is the greater of:

  • 1 percent of your household income that is above the tax return threshold for your filing status, such as Married Filing Jointly or single, or
  • Your family’s flat dollar amount, which is $95 per adult and $47.50 per child, limited to a maximum of $285.

The individual shared responsibility payment is capped at the cost of the national average premium for the bronze level health plan available through the Marketplace in 2014. You will make the payment when you file your 2014 federal income tax return in 2015. (source)

Some people object to the income tax to start with and are engaging in battles with the Mafia IRS over the very principle of such a thing. But even if you feel that paying taxes is your duty or obligation as a citizen, if ever there has been a reason to balk at paying taxes, this is it.

Basically, if you pay for Obamacare, you get nothing until you’ve already paid $5000 from your own pocket, meaning that most families spend at bare minimum $7,000 before getting one iota in return. And I don’t know about you, but even with children, we don’t rack up $7,000 in medical bills over the period of five years, more less one.

If you refuse to enroll and pay for Obamacare, you’re supposed to pay the IRS for nothing just because they said so…sort of like paying “protection money” to the Mafia so that they don’t send someone around to burn down your home.

Good luck with that, IRS. If enough Americans refuse to participate in this extortion, then what exactly are they going to do about it? Are they going to kneecap us? Mail us the severed ear of a family member by parcel post? Hold the family cat for ransom until the “protection money” is paid?

The very term “shared responsibility payment” sounds like something from a novel by Orwell, and personally, I’m not going to “share a responsibility” I had no part in creating. I will not comply.

The US Federal Government is the ideal business model for perpetrating acts of organized crime on innocent people. And one of these days, those innocent people are going to fight back, either through non-compliance, civil disobedience, or other means.

    A nice sentiment, but the IRS will not care about your morals, outrage or dissent. Unless you live like the Unabomber in an unheated cabin with no access to the outside world, you will by necessity have a job and a bank account. If the computers say you owe, the IRS will take, whether by decreasing your refund amount or by seizing any or all of your funds in any bank account with you or your family’s name attached to it.

    Only through the system can this be challenged, with learned legal arguments and evidence of misconduct / outright criminal behavior stated in public forums and courts. Then, they will start looking for the scapegoats in their own house to save their own bureaucratic skins.

      This is why more and more people are starting to work for cash. If you work for cash, the IRS will have no clue how much you make and will not have paychecks/bank accounts to siphon money from.

        Welcome to the underground economy…$2 trillion a year and counting.

      I worry about this, as I plan on NOT buying into Obamacare! I took early retirement from doing stock speculation and doing it prudently. While I only do it now for “fun”, I still worry about the IRS as even though I don’t work most of the time, they could conceivably get to my bank accounts.

      The law says they can’t attach or garnish bank accounts for Obamacare, but I don’t trust them.

        Sign up for a healthcare ministry and you are covered (assuming you are Christian). Three of them are approved to exempt you from OVomitCare. They are Christian Healthcare Ministries, Medi-share, and Good Samaritan. I belong to Christian Healthcare Ministries which is the most reasonable for $45, $85, or $150 a month. Coverage varies depending on which you pick. $45 or $85 gets you coverage of anything over $5,000 or $1,000, respectively, per incident up to $125,000. You can an additional $100,000 per incident per year up to a million after nine years for about an extra $140 a year. For their most expensive plan, you are covered for any incident over $500 up to one million. They don’t cover pre-existing conditions or smokers. So if you are Christian and healthy and could care less about Obummacare and paying the insurance companies and want peace of mind, then you might want to check into them.

        Yeah right! They will. State of CA does if you owe them registration fees on a broken vehicle you forget to non-op. It just happened to us yesterday. Went to the DMV yesterday and they said you either pay $1700 more or we remove it from your account (after they reversed a partial seizure from the week before). Having dealt with the CA state franchise tax board several times, they DO seize and add liens. The IRS isn’t as scary as the state but I haven’t pissed the IRS off before so I don’t have experience with them. Even when you don’t owe the state and can prove it, they say you owe them. They actually owe ME $12,500 for an overpayment in 2006. I tried forever to get it back, “sorry it’s been over 3 years.” It was 3 years and 10 months when I tried to get it back. Sure as hell the IRS will seize over this unconstitutional requirement on the crappiest healthcare coverage I have seen in all of my years. And when you tell them, sorry I don’t have a job. They say how are you existing? I’m selling my crap on Craigslist and eating from the dollar store, and I walk when I can because I can’t afford gas. They can’t fathom it.

      • Phar Ma Doc

        The “law” is correct as no one will garnish you to make you join O’Care.But the IRS will. You are obliged to pay the “penalty” or whatever euphemism they put on it, and if you don’t “voluntarily”, then they will come get it from you – forcibly.

      • taxprofessional

        The PPACA is only an amendment to, and subordinate to USC Title 42 of the United States Code.

        Everything they have claimed about this program has been a lie, including the
        claim that you can be fined for not participating. The only way you can be fined for not participating is if you fail to object. Just refer them to:

        42 USC § 18115 – Freedom not to participate in Federal health insurance programs

        “No individual, company, business, nonprofit entity, or health insurance issuer
        offering group or individual health insurance coverage shall be required to participate in any Federal health insurance program created under this Act (or any amendments made by this Act), or in any Federal health insurance program expanded by this Act (or any such amendments), and there shall be no penalty or fine imposed upon any such issuer for choosing not to participate in such programs.

        If this clause were not there, the entire PPACA would be unconstitutional. It’s all smoke and mirrors.

        But, if they can con enough of the plebes into believing them for a few years, then they get away with it. If your tax professional doesn’t understand how to get you out of this tax, then they are extremely ignorant, are doing you a disservice, and you need to get a new tax professional.

        • h5mind

          Ironically, they followed a very similar tactic when they instituted the (voluntary) income tax in this country for workers in the private sector. How many people today know it’s a voluntary tax?

        • trotterotter

          Wrong.

          The claim that this section of the law allows individuals to “opt out” of the Obamacare health insurance mandate is erroneous, however; a typical case of people viewing information out of context, misunderstanding it, and mistakenly construing to mean what they want it to say. As this section of the law clearly states, it applies to issuers of group or individual health insurance coverage, not purchasers of health insurance coverage.
          What this law says is that no one who provides health insurance may be forced to participate in any federal health insurance program (e.g., they don’t have to offer or sell coverage through government-created health insurance exchange marketplaces) or be penalized for declining to do so.

          The individual health insurance mandate is one of keystones of the Affordable Care Act’s implementation. If it were truly optional rather than a requirement, then that fact would long since have been thoroughly publicized to the point of being common knowledge. It wouldn’t be an obscure nugget of information hidden in the depths of the U.S. Code, revealed only through unreliable conspiracy web sites and social media posts.

  • gato felix

    Can someone please look this up and explain 42 usc 18115 Freedom not to participate in the federal health insurance program, some feedback would be welcomed. thanks.

  • concernedRN

    I’m with ya Daisy… I will not comply either. I work in the healthcare industry, and although I will be the first to tell you it needs a major overhaul, Obamacare is NOT the answer. I really don’t know what the answer is because the problem is so complex, but forcing Obamacare down American’s throats is definitely NOT the answer.

    • h5mind

      The solution is to phase out all federal government meddling with healthcare providers, insurance, and hospitals. Every bit of it is unconstitutional. There was a world prior to Medicare. The larger issue is people don’t need ‘healthcare’ coverage, per se, they need good health. They require clean air, water, and soil. They deserve non-GMO food. They need their government to stop spraying Round-Up on their heads and pouring sewage into their rivers and oceans. It would be nice if they stopped building nuke plants without a means to contain catastrophic meltdowns, too.

      • concernedRN

        I agree 100%. Those sound like great ideas to me!! Now, the question is, how do we go about implementing these ideas when the whole effin world is ruled by a few ultra rich entities who are making even more money off nuclear power, unabated pollution, GMOs, etc etc…

    They will pass taking your house down the line like they did in the 1930s, you will be shooting at people living in your state, bank employees, sheriffs and marshals tasked with (nominally) ousting deadbeats, again, it will be levied on your real estate property for not having obamacare.
    Its all part of a divide and conquer strategy that has worked for over 100 years here in America.
    Its only when enough locals DONT GO HOME that they even begin to question it, much like HOA bullying here in AZ, it was only questioned after a man who was being illegally bullied by his HOA shot them all and then himself.
    Only when the local law refuses to co-operate will this system cease functioning. TALK TO YOUR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT. once the SHTF, the local law will seen as an enemy of the general public if they don’t turn on the feds first, publicly, where their neighbors can SEE IT PUBLICALLY. There were movies made about this happening in the 1930s, they probably aint on Netflix.

    • Aeffesstoo

      States should pass laws forbidding local officials from supporting obamacare in any way.

  • robertsgt40

    Daisy, you’re my kinda gal.

  • EruditeMan

    Rest assured that the IRS will vacuum ‘the individual shared responsibility provision’ funds right out of your bank or checking account if you don’t knuckle-under to the ‘extortion’. The un-Affordable Careless Act is the Trojan Horse that Satan will use to latch onto everyone in the USA when he initiates the mark of the Beast. The signs in the sky this year (blood-moon tetrads) will probably herald the ‘Covenant With Many for 7 years’ in & Israel will agree to Satan’s ‘peace and safety’ plan to build 3rd temple of Solomon on Mt. Moriah in Jerusalem. Barack H. Obama & Pope Francis are probably the Antichrist & the False Prophet that all Christians believe will appear within the lifetime of people alive in 1948 when the nation of Israel was created.
