Q: I have heard that under the new health care bill, the dollar amount of employer-provided health care premiums will be added to one’s income on one’s W-2 starting next year. Is this correct?
A: Relax. That provision doesn’t go into effect until 2018. Further, it’s not entirely clear what its effect would be.

If the dollar amount of the employer provided health care premium is added to one’s W-2 then it would seem clear that one would be paying additional income tax on that amount.
