Form 1095-A Premium Tax Credit

Did you receive Form 1095-A and received an advance payment of the Premium Tax Credit? If so, this information needs to be added to your tax return.

If you file your return as someone with Marketplace healthcare without including your 1095-A, the IRS will reject your rerurn with this message:

Your return was rejected because the IRS records indicate you received an advanced payment of the Premium Tax Credit for health insurance purchased through the Marketplace for someone on your return. You'll need to provide information from the Form 1095-A that you received from the Marketplace.

Note: Only the IRS rejects returns; if you received this notice, then the IRS' records indicate that you or someone on your return should have received a 1095-A, even if you did not receive it.
