This January update has been revised. Please disregard the previous version.
Consumers may need help making the connection between Marketplace premium tax credits and filing their taxes.
Many are unaware that they:
1. Must reconcile their tax credits or claim tax credits for the first time
2. May have to pay a fee if they are uninsured, or
3. May qualify for an exemption from the fee.
It’s important for people to know that If anyone in their household enrolled in a health plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace in 2014, they’ll get a new Form 1095-A — Health Insurance Marketplace Statement. The form will be mailed in early February for them to use to file their 2014 federal income tax return.
Remind them to keep this form with their other important tax information, like W-2 forms and other tax records. They'll get a Form - 1095-A even if a member of their household only had Marketplace coverage for part of 2014. They won't get this form if no one in the household is enrolled in a Marketplace Qualified Health Plan.
