White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest described reports that millions of Americans would be getting tax bill because of Obamacare as “inaccurate” just days after the Treasury Department estimated that 6 million Americans will pay about $2 billion in individual mandate taxes this year.
“I don’t think it is accurate to suggest that millions of people are going to get a tax bill as a result of this,” Earnest said in response to a question Tuesday about the millions of Americans who will pay a tax penalty for not having health insurance in 2014. “The vast majority of Americans, more than three-quarters of Americans, are just going to have a box to check on their tax form to confirm that they’ve had health insurance. And so the impact that we are talking about here is very small and for the vast majority of people has been very positive.”
