Tax season is upon us. Many consumers are unaware that their Marketplace (Healthcare.gov) applications affect their taxes. If there are mistakes on their application, this may lead to inaccuracies in their Health Insurance Marketplace Statement (Form 1095-A).
The Form 1095-A is a pre-populated tax form used by consumers to reconcile advance payments of premium tax credit (APTC - often called "tax subsidy") and claim the premium tax credit (PTC).
Consumers can expect their Form 1095-A by mail no later than mid-February. It may be available in their HealthCare.gov account as soon as mid-January.
If you enrolled in health insurance through the Marketplace for 2017, you can log in to your HealthCare.gov account to download and double-check that your Form 1095-A information is correct.
If any part of your Form 1095-A is incorrect, please contact the Marketplace Call Center to report corrections.
