The Obama administration announced Friday that about 800,000 Americans have received erroneous tax information through HealthCare.gov, reported The New York Times.
The government is not aware of what caused the error, but it involves a new form called a 1095-A, which is intended for people receiving subsidized private coverage under Obamacare.
According to several media outlets, the government is asking those affected by the error to wait for corrected information before filing their taxes. However this delay could lead to a financial strain for those affected.
While a significant number of those enrolled have been affected by this tax issue, government officials said that “the overall performance of Healthcare.gov has improved considerably since last year,” when it was plagued with glitches that made the site almost impossible to use.
