There is more than one reason why having health insurance is a good idea:
The penalty for not having health insurance in 2016 has increased from previous years. The fee is calculated two ways and you would pay whichever is higher.

This is the first year the IRS has required most businesses to provide Form 1095-C.
Form 1095-C reports to the IRS that you had minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act and which months of the year you had the coverage.

Penalties for not having minimum essential health insurance are higher in 2016 than they've ever been. Open enrollment has closed, but you may be eligible for a special enrollment period so you can get insurance. Find out if you qualify; it may mean avoiding serious fines in the future! http://ow.ly/XKYGo #FreeTaxTipTuesday

The most complete free tax solution for everyone.
Introduction
TaxAct®, founded in 1998, specializes in tax preparation software and Web-based services. Our flagship product, TaxACT, provides its users the highest degree of accuracy and completeness and is designed by in-house programmers, CPAs (Certified Public Accountants), and tax accountants.
 

A True David and Goliath Story

TaxACT was created from the ashes of a product called Personal Tax Edge marketed by Parsons Technology. In 1994, Intuit, the makers of TurboTax, acquired Parsons Technology and Personal Tax Edge, their next closest competitor. By 1997, Personal Tax Edge was gone, but the discontinuation of Personal Tax Edge led the founders of 2nd Story Software (all of whom had worked on the Personal Tax Edge product) to create TaxACT. Starting with a simple goal to provide high quality tax preparation software to taxpayers at an affordable price, TaxACT launched in 1998. In less than a decade, 2nd Story Software claimed its place amongst the Goliaths of the industry, becoming the number two destination for online tax preparation.
