3. Now that the Affordable Care Act is here to stay (yes it is!), you may have some questions about the tax consequences, especially what you can and can't deduct. Legally, that is. H&R Block will be at the South End branch on to answer your questions on Saturday, January 17 at 11:00 AM, and give an explanation about how it all works.
