The healthcare insurances provided by market place that are ACA approved cost way more without actual benefits. Also with many companies dropped off from ACA, the choices are very limited. Hence for this year i have chosen to go off marketplace and select a suitable insurance. What that means is may be I have to pay tax penalty for 2018 tax filing. So the question is having penalized by IRS does it effect any of my immigration processings; now or may be in future (if i decide to go back to India for few years and then have H1 be filed for returning to USA). Some say that we may not even have to pay penalty, Can you please confirm ?
