Joe Biden said he will re-impose the Obamacare individual mandate tax if he is elected. Most households liable for this tax made less than $50,000 per year.

According to IRS data, Biden's individual mandate tax would hit roughly 353,000 households in Florida and 153,000 households in Pennsylvania. (See the full list of state figures at bottom).

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act signed by President Trump zeroed out the $695-$2,085 Biden-Obama individual mandate tax.

But Biden has already vowed to re-impose the individual mandate tax. Here's his exchange with CNN on July 5, 2019:

CNN's Chris Cuomo: "Would you bring back the individual mandate?"

Joe Biden: "Yes. Yes, I'd bring back the individual mandate."

See for yourself by watching the clip below:

According to official IRS data for the 2017 tax year, 74% of households liable for the individual mandate tax had an adjusted gross income of less than $50,000.

  • The individual mandate tax penalty was paid by 4,606,271 households.
  • 3,430,003 of these households had an adjusted gross income of less than $50,000.
     

Biden has some explaining to do, as he made a promise to every American making less than $400,000 per year that they would not see a single penny of ANY tax hike. This Biden tax will hit middle class households in every state and every congressional district.

IRS data below shows the number of households per state hit with this tax in just one year, 2017. This data serves as an approximation of how many households will be hit under Biden's individual mandate tax.
