Filing your taxes this year will help determine whether you qualify for federal assistance for health care coverage.  People who fall within 400-percent of the federal poverty level will likely be eligible for a subsidy.  At the lowest level, a family of four with an income of around 90-thousand dollars a year could get help paying for health insurance.  

Everyone in the state must have coverage by the end of the year otherwise they'll pay a penalty when they file their taxes next year.
