(NEWSER) – ObamaCare generated positive headlines earlier this week when the White House announced that a better-than-expected total of 11.4 million people had enrolled through its exchanges. Today, not so much. The White House says that incorrect tax information got sent out to about 800,000 enrollees, who now must wait until the corrected forms arrive to file their returns.
About 50,000 people have already filed using the bad info, and they'll now have to refile or amend their returns, reportsAP. The error involves incorrect "benchmark premiums," used to calculate enrollees' subsidies, on forms sent out by the government.
