Is there a way to state ineligibility for the premium tax credit when entering 1095-A in TurboTax?

I was ineligible for the premium tax credit last year despite having marketplace coverage because I was technically able to get coverage through my wife's employer (it was more expensive than the marketplace). I received my 1095-A and when I entered it into TurboTax it increased my refund by $900 which I assume is a mistake because of my ineligibility. Is there a way to submit that form but say I am ineligible? Or should I just pretend like I didn't receive a 1095-A? I can't find any rules regarding this specific situation.


It is possible that with the other information you entered, you were eligible for a partial premium tax credit.  Do NOT ignore the 1095-A.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
