A new partnership between TaxSlayer and VelaPoint promises to serve customers with tax and insurance needs in a whole new way.

By examining trends in the industry, we’ve predicted that the 2015 tax season will present new, potentially confusing issues for millions of Americans.

TaxSlayer, LLC has announced a new partnership with insurance brokerage, VelaPoint Insurance. This relationship, conceived in order to address the brand new set of issues facing Americans during the first tax season since health reform laws have gone into effect, will provide TaxSlayer’s current and future customers with insurance coverage questions with a resource they can trust.

Individuals and families attempting to file for the 2014 tax season will be confronted with questions about their insurance coverage they may not be able to answer on their own. This will be particularly true for low- and middle-income individuals, who are most affected by the reforms brought about by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Issues regarding Minimum Essential Health Coverage, tax penalties, premium subsidies and more will inevitably arise.

Because health insurance has become a tax issue, TaxSlayer has taken the proactive step of partnering with a resource that can help answer any insurance questions that arise during return preparations. For over 40 years, TaxSlayer has provided its customers with advice they can trust at a great value, and by joining with VelaPoint Insurance, this service can continue seamlessly in a post-reform world. The knowledgeable tax professionals at TaxSlayer, paired with the licensed insurance experts at VelaPoint, will have all the answers Americans are looking for.

“By examining trends in the industry, we’ve predicted that the 2015 tax season will present new, potentially confusing issues for millions of Americans,” said Jimmy Rhodes, president of TaxSlayer. “Continuing our commitment to both saving our customers money and providing the answers they need is our number one goal. To meet this demand, we wanted to partner with a resource that is committed to the same goal when it comes to helping consumers find the right health insurance coverage and navigating health reform.”

“We’re very excited to be working with TaxSlayer,” said Aaron Goddard, president of VelaPoint Insurance. “We know that the two biggest challenges most Americans will be facing due to health reform are how to find the right coverage that meets the complex requirements of the ACA and feeling confident that their taxes are being filed correctly under the new guidelines.”
