Why is TurboTax NOT asking about healthcare?

There is no longer a penalty for not having qualifying health insurance, so there is not a need for a simple "Did you have health insurance all year?"

 

TurboTax has moved all healthcare questions to the subheading Medical under Deductions & Credits. This includes questions about form 1095-A and the Affordable Care Act.

 

If you do have a 1095-A, then you need to enter it, because you need to reconcile the Premium Tax Credit on the form 8896 (which TurboTax will generate from the 1095-A).

Some states, however, still do require healthcare coverage.

Here are the directions to get IRS form 8962 filled out.  You are not going to amend your return and you are not going to add a state return.

  • Log into your return.
  • Select that you want to Add a state - this lets you into the program without the amend process starting.
  • In the top right corner, locate the Magnifying glass/Search.  
  • enter the exact words 1095a.
  • Select the first entry Jump to 1095a.
  • Fill in the 1095a information.
  • Print and mail the form 8962.
  • The IRS may adjust your refund once they receive your form 8962.

Well thanks for messing my return. IRS is asking for the 1095-A and the online version wont allow me to fix the return. $40 dollars wasted on using your software.

JamesG1 instructions above should work for the online version to get the form 8962 printed to mail to the IRS per their request.

Send the 8962 and 1095A?

Log into IRS.gov to follow these step?

Send copies of the form 8962 and form 1095-A per the IRS instructions in your letter.
