Health reform and taxes


Q: I have heard that under the new health care bill, the dollar amount of employer-provided health care premiums will be added to one’s income on one’s W-2 starting next year. Is this correct?

A: Relax. That provision doesn’t go into effect until 2018. Further, it’s not entirely clear what its effect would be.
