Amateur hour (day/year) – HHS extends Obamacare enrollment, says 800K filers got bad subsidy info.
The Obama administration says it sent about 800,000 HealthCare.gov customers the wrong tax information, and officials are asking those consumers to delay filing their 2014 taxes.
The tax error disclosed Friday is a self-inflicted injury that comes on the heels of what President Barack Obama had touted as a successful enrollment season, with about 11.4 million people signed up.
California, which is running its own insurance market, just announced a similar problem affecting about 100,000 people in that state.
You can’t make this stuff up.
