The Week

1.About 800,000 taxpayers using Healthcare.gov received incorrect tax data
The Obama administration on Friday told about 800,000 taxpayers who purchased insurance policies via Healthcare.gov that they had been sent incorrect tax information. The affected individuals have been advised to hold off on filing their tax returns until the government sends them corrected data, which will likely arrive the first week of March. The incorrect forms included miscalculated “benchmark premiums,” officials said. Those premiums are reported so that taxpayers receive subsidies-as-tax-credits based on their projected income for 2014 and insurance coverage purchased. The mistake means some taxpayers will receive more credit help, while others will receive less than their first forms stated, officials said.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
