Use this procedure for a Form 8962 requested by the IRS -

  1. Sign into your account with the same login you used when you filed your 2018 return.
  2. When you sign onto your online account and land on the Tax Home web page, scroll down and click on Add a state.  Add a State 2018.JPG


  3. This will take you back to the 2018 online tax return.
  4. Select the Federal tab
  5. Select the Health Insurance tab.
  6. Answer the questions about your health insurance which includes entering your 1095-A.
  7. Select Tax Tools (found on the left panel), then select Print Center below it.
  8. Choose Print, save, or preview this year’s return.
  9. Select View or print.
  10. Select Form 8962 and Form 1040 and print them.
  11. Send the following to the IRS address or FAX number given in your IRS letter:
  • Form 8962, Premium Tax Credit

The 8962 is only necessary and required if you have a 1095-A. So if you don't have a 1095-A then you have no need for the 8962.

Now my guess is that you are probably covered on your parent's plan, and they did receive a 1095-A with your name listed on it as a covered person under their plan. So basically you need their 1095-A. Then in the program you *MUST* indicate that you do have a 1095-A and work it through to enter all the data from that form, at which point the 8962 will be created and filled in by the program.
