Letter from irs saying i need 1095a

Yes, the IRS is holding up refunds until the taxpayers comply by sending the required forms since they didn't send them on the original return per the IRS regulations.  

Log back into your return by clicking on “Visit My Tax Timeline”

>>> click on "add a state" to open the tax file

>>> click on the Health Insurance tab to enter the 1095-A information and complete the 8962 questions.


Here is how to enter your information for 1095-A form:

• Under the Personal tab, select the Health Insurance section of TurboTax.

• When asked, Did you have health insurance coverage in 2015?, select that you had health insurance coverage all year (since this was your situation), and Continue.

• When asked, Was anyone enrolled in a plan from a Marketplace?, select Yes.

• When asked, What type of plan were you enrolled in?, select Obamacare plan (1095-A), and then Continue.

• Follow the prompts to enter your 1095-A.


>>> click on the Review tab and fix any errors if needed

>>> click on My Account > Print center > save a fresh PDF of the return

>>> print off the form 1040 & 8962

>>>   send the   signed   page 2 of the form 1040 (if they asked for it) , the 1095-A & the 8962 as directed in the letter on page 2
