    I am not buying the “no teeth” part of the discussion. I have seen too many abuses by the IRS and what is the point if there is no real enforcement mechanism? What about the order of assessment? If they assess the health “tax” first then the income tax on your return; your tax withholding gets applied to the the healthcare shared responsibility, penalty/tax first then what is left is ordinary tax debt which can incur all of the normal enforcement of liens, levies, garnishments. Just sayin…. The same could affect an employer with 941 deposits; the IRS assesses the health tax/penalty and the 941 payment goes towards the health tax rather than the 941 payment and then not only the enforcement mechanisms kick in but also FTP penalties! Any thoughts?
