This tax season, will you have to dip into your wallet for the shared individual responsibility payment for not having health care insurance? About 2-4 million taxpayers may have to pay the penalty. But if you don't pay, what's the worst that could happen?

Worried about e-filing? While IRS says that it's safe and secure, some taxpayers are opting out of e-filing and into paper forms this year. Here's how to find IRS forms, publications and instructions.

Figuring out your relationship can be tricky but when it comes to IRS, the rules are pretty straightforward. There are only five choices: single, married filing separately, married filing jointly, head of household and qualifying widow(er) with dependent child. Unlike what you might say on Facebook, it's not that complicated.

The IRS has released the latest version of its mobile app, IRS2Go 5.0. Why upgrade mid-season? Some older versions of the app won't allow you to check on your tax refund. But the upgrade does have a downside for some taxpayers: guess what's missing?

Argh. Having a little difficulty sorting through Google+ pages but trying my very best! I should have links from my YouTube channel (new vids forthcoming) on +taxgirl - that's different from this page (+KellyPhillipsErb) which was intended to be my personal page. I'll let you know when it's all sorted out!

In 2014, the Social Security Administration made news when it was reported that taxpayer refunds were being seized to settle decades old debts. Despite promises to stop the practice, SSA kept seizing refunds. Now, taxpayers are fighting back with a lawsuit.

Are you insured? If you're not insured, the deadline to enroll in health care coverage through the Marketplace is quickly approaching. Mark your calendar: the last day to make a change (and avoid paying tax for failure to obtain coverage) is February 15.

As tax season rolls on, there are more and more questions about identity theft, data security and tax fraud. As TurboTax seeks to reassure taxpayers that their data is safe, states are sharing information with federal agencies - and now it appears that the FBI is involved.
