Turbotax 2012   For issuers of specified health insurance policies, the fee for a policy year ending before October 1, 2013, is $1. Turbotax 2012 00, multiplied by the average number of lives covered under the policy for that policy year. Turbotax 2012 Generally, issuers of specified health insurance polices must use one of the following four alternative methods to determine the average number of lives covered under a policy for the policy year. Turbotax 2012 The actual count method. Turbotax 2012 For policy years that end on or after October 1, 2012, issuers using the actual count method may begin counting lives covered under a policy as of May 14, 2012, rather than the first day of the policy year, and divide by the appropriate number of days remaining in the policy year. Turbotax 2012 The snapshot method. Turbotax 2012 For policy years that end on or after October 1, 2012, but that began before May 14, 2012, issuers using the snapshot method may use counts from quarters beginning on or after May 14, 2012, to determine the average number of lives covered under the policy.

Turbotax 2012 The member months data and the data reported on state forms are based on the calendar year.

Turbotax 2012   File Form 720 annually to report and pay the fee on the second quarter Form 720, no later than July 31 of the calendar year immediately following the last day of the policy year or plan year to which the fee applies.
