According to TurboTax, 70 percent of their clients are saying Obamacare costs too much for them to pay, even for the most affordable plans. These customers are instead using a financial burden Obamacare exemption which is available from the IRS.

Some people use the Obamacare exemption if they have been evicted from their home, experienced the death of a family member, or have gone through some other disaster that has lead them to be unable to afford Obamacare.

The penalties for refusing Obamacare insurance have gone up from $95 when the program went into place in 2014 to $325 as of 2015. If penalties were unpaid in 2015, it will go up to $695, or 2.5 percent of income, in the next year, if the person continues to go uninsured.

According to TurboTax, some of the factors that can lead to an Obamacare exemption are:
– Being in prison,
– Being an undocumented immigrant,
– Being insured through a religious organization,
– Being the victim of domestic violence,
– Being under Federal poverty income levels.
