Why do I have to delete 8885?

If your return includes the Health Coverage Tax Credit (Form 8885) and the Premium Tax Credit (Form 8962), Turbo Tax will only allow the Premium Tax Credit, not both. You will be asked to delete the Form 8885 with the HCTC.

The Health Coverage Tax Credit is a credit that helps you pay for your health insurance. Few taxpayers qualify for this credit.

To qualify for the HCTC, you were an eligible trade adjustment assistance (TAA) recipient, alternative TAA recipient, reemployment TAA recipient, or Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) pension payee or you were a qualified family member of someone in one of these categories.
