Address and 1095-A

Hello! 

Hope to get answers to a few questions here. When I started on TurboTax, I was given an option to speak a tax specialist.I am no longer able to find the option; it appears this option is available only before you fill the details. 

 

Context: I lived in the US till early Oct on a work visa. 

a. I no longer live in the same apartment. I am back in my home country now. Mail sent to this address is forwarded to a friend. On the TT form, this address is listed. Is that ok? I don't know what other address to use here. 

b. As long as I was in the US, my employer paid for my insurance. Just to be clear, the 1095-A does not apply for my situation, correct?

Thank you!

Address and 1095-A

"my employer paid for my insurance" - the 1095-A applies only to US citizens and residents who acquired health insurance through the Marketplace under the terms of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). The 1095-A provides information so that the amount of Premium Tax Credit that was provided to the taxpayer can be "reconciled" based on your final income.

 

Normally, people who are "sin papeles" (without papers) are not eligible for the premium tax credit and wouldn't have been given insurance through the Marketplace anyway. I have no idea what your tax status is (citizen/greencard/tax resident/nonresident for tax purposes), so I point this out in case it applies.

 

If you did not buy health insurance through the Marketplace, then you won't get a 1095-A, so don't worry about it.

The address on your tax return should be the address where the IRS can reach you in case the have questions about your return - normally, this is your home postal address. I do not know all the ramifications of a nonresident using a US address (it affects how you pay, for example).

 

I would encourage you to make a separate (new) post asking this question so that others can see it and respond.
