US Healthcare.gov Sends Wrong Tax Information to 800,000 People
Ryan Simmons / 2 years ago
In another example of how the US government can’t deploy major tech initiatives without some sort of major mishap, the ever troubled Healthcare.gov site has sent incorrect tax information to 800,000 users.
All of those users received tax details that were incorrect in some way, and have been told to wait before filling their taxes this year. According to The New York Times, all of those affected have been contacted and told to read this for further information. Apparently, they’ll be getting replacement details, with the correct information, early next month.
Healthcare.gov has been pretty much in a mess right from the get-go. What initially seemed like a forward-thinking and efficient online way to ensure people have health insurance, turned out to be a nightmare. Not because of policy, but because of poor web design and management. There have been security lapses and massive bugs meaning people couldn’t sign up and now this.
Let’s hope this is last of Healthcare.gov’s calamities.
