RChick, that is my big question, too. SCOTUS' decision was screwy, but they did,in fact, say it was a tax and not a penalty. I'm no expert in tax law by any remote means, but it seems to me that taxes and penalties are very different things and must have very different effects and consequences. I wonder if someone somewhere might be able to find out if someone's refusing to pay a tax (as SCOTUS has determined it is) because it is improperly branded a penalty might have some legal standing.
