Supplementary notes
Original question: "As you may know, the law requires nearly all Americans to have health insurance or else pay a fine when they file their taxes. As far as you know, did the requirement to report your health insurance status on your tax return take effect last year, that is for filing 2013 taxes, this year, that is for filing 2014 taxes, or does it take effect next year for 2015 taxes?"
