If you decide to go uninsured, you may incur a tax penalty—in 2015, the penalty could amount to thousands, depending on your family size and income. Learn more about the Obamacare tax penalty here. However, there are a few exemptions from the penalty, such as household income that’s below a certain level or being a member of a Native American tribe. Here are more details about possible exemptions.
