i'm going to to my local IRS office tomorrow or Friday to clear this up with them, so i'd like any information as possible. Because i don't want to take a fine that i don't need to get.
If you are going to the IRS office, your forms 1095-A and any 1095-B or 1095-C should be perfect to demonstrate your coverage. To enter the information into TurboTax, please follow the directions below.
TurboTax will not need
specifics for the 1095-C from Medicaid for your return, as it does for the
1095-A form. The directions below will guide you through that area
although you should click on the months the 1095-C plan covered, for the
person it covered, but you will not need to enter the details for that form.
Medicaid shares the information directly with the IRS, so those coverage
details do not need to be entered in your return.
- Click on the Federal Taxes tab and select Health Insurance
- When asked if you had health insurance in 2016, select either all year or you will pick what months (all months on all plans total), and Continue.
- When asked about being enrolled in any of these less common plans in 2016, select Yes if anyone was enrolled for any months.
- On the What type of plan were you enrolled in? screen, select the option that generated the 1095-A, and then Continue.
- Follow the prompts to enter your 1095-A for the months on the form. Leave any other months blank and Turbo Tax will know it does not need any forms for that time. Your return will not need entry for any time covered by an employer's plan or by Medicaid. It does not need entry of 1095-B or Cs. It only needs specific information from the 1094-A form.
Note: If most of the lines across are the same, you can use the blue copy previous month button to enter it again.
