I need to complete a 8962 and 1095. i was on my dads health plan for a few months then my own plan.do i need to add the info for the 1095 if the plan was under his name?

i completed my tax return but got a letter requesting the form 8962 and 1095a. in 2017, i was on my dads health insurance from january-may and my own plan from june-december. i saw that i can amend my return through turbotax. when i am going through the questions, it is asking me to add the info from the 1095a. how do i do it or do i need to do it if i was on my dads plan for only a few months? the remainder part of the year, i had my own plan and recieved the 1095c form which i do not need to do anything with.

If your parent's plan was not from the Marketplace and you already submitted your insurance and selected the months your parent's policy covered, then contact the IRS at the phone number or address on the notice and advise them your parents do not have a 1095-A.

If your parents do have a Marketplace policy and a 1095-A, here are directions for how to enter a shared policy and below that, step-by-step directions for how to respond to the IRS notice.

Turbo Tax can help you complete a Form 8962 if you have received a letter from the IRS asking for an update.  Be sure to check if the letter references tax year 2017 or 2016. The form should have been generated when you entered your 1095-A into the Health Insurance section of Turbo Tax, but if for some reason it was not entered, these are the step-by-step instructions to add them.
