MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Officials overseeing the Vermont Health Connect insurance marketplace say they’re on target for getting people ready for tax-filing changes tied to the new program.

With more than 37,000 people enrolled in Vermont Health Connect for at least part of last year, officials say more than 25,000 tax filers are getting paperwork in the mail instructing them how to square up with the Internal Revenue Service.

There’s a new IRS form for people to report any federal tax credits they got to help pay monthly premiums. If income changes made those subsidies larger or smaller than they were supposed to be, people will either get a refund or be expected to pay more.

There’s also a penalty for any taxpayer who went without insurance last year.
