The IRS is requesting Form 8962 for 2015

The IRS usually wants you to send them a copy of your 1095-A, the form 8962 and the "newly computed"  page two of a form 1040 or 1040A which shows the change(s) to your return. This letter is numbered LTR 12C (see upper right corner.) Be sure to read the details of your letter. For more information, see Understanding Your Letter 0012C.

We'll take you through some of the TurboTax screens so you can answer a few questions and enter information from your 1095-A. When you do, TurboTax will fill out an 8962 and  a "newly computed" page for you to  submit to the IRS.

You will not be completing and sending a Form 1040X (an amended tax return) to the IRS; you will only print out the requested forms.
