As far as I can tell, a literal reading of the Code just says that the IRS is precluded from
(1) Placing a federal tax lien, or
(2) Issuing a levy
to collect the "shared responsibility payment."

And those are their more usual "tough-guy" tactics that they like to use.

I think they could still send you a bill and see if you pay it.

And I'm sure they're thinking up schemes for other ways to get it out of you, or complicate your life in other ways if you don't pay.

Query for Phil: Is a "payment intercept", where the IRS can attach your state refund, or other govt. payments, like Social Security payments, or Agricultural subsidies, something they could do? Or is that technically a "levy"? I'm sure it feels like a levy if it happens to you.
