No, you cannot fill out the Form 8962 line by line in TurboTax Online.

 

Your form 8962 is completed in TurboTax Online when you complete the interview questions in the section at Federal>Deductions & Credits>Medical>Affordable Care Act (Form 1095-A).

 

TurboTax asks you in the interview questions for the modified adjusted gross income (AGI) for your dependents (Form 8962, Part I, Line 2b). TurboTax already "knows" from the other information in your tax return your modified AGI (Form 8962, Part I, Line 2a) and the number of people in your "tax family" (Part I, Line 1).

Thats what i thought.

Thats how i did it last year.  For some reason this year, im not getting the interview questions.  I dont even see the Medical tab under deductions and credits.  Im going to go back over that section and see if i missed it.

Thank You.

Did you find where to enter the dependent's modified AGI.  I'm not seeing that and was not asked about when I entered the Form 1095-A information.

I do not see this interview question regarding MAGI for my dependents. Can you help me locate it?

No, the program does not ask about a dependent's MAGI in the section for entering a Form 1095-A.

 

You only need to add the Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) (see below for detail) for dependents listed on this return who are required to file a tax return (excluding if they filed a return to only claim a full refund of taxes withheld or estimated taxes paid).

 

Is this your situation?

After logging in to TurboTax Online:

  • Select “Take me to my return”.

The interview does not include any questions regarding total household income.  Got the desktop version which does have this question.  And it cost much less.  This is a program bug.

Turbotax Home and Business version, in section Federal>Deductions & Credits>Medical>Affordable Care Act (Form 1095-A) goes straight to a blank Form 1095-A.  There are no interview questions for MAGI or AGI for my dependents. When looking at forms, Form 8962, Line 2b is empty.

Is it possible you are in Form View mode and you need to toggle over to "Step by Step" to see the questions appear?

I also have the desktop version and the interview questions regarding modified adjusted gross income of dependents is not coming up.  I am in the Step by Step view, not Form View Mode.  Appears to be a bug in the program.

Go to Forms View/Form 8962.  Enter the total household income directly on Part I, Line 2b.

 

You are correct.  There is no interview question.

Step by step mode does not ask any questions about the dependent MAGI. But a work around to solve this issue is to enter the dependent MAGI in the Forms view. The Federal Review didn't catch that the line 2b is empty either.
