Making a Shared Responsibility Payment For each month in the year that anyone on your return did not have qualifying coverage and did not qualify for an exemption, you may need to make a payment5 with your tax return. Calculate your payment using a worksheet from the Form 8965 Instructions and report your payment on your tax return. Tax preparation software can also help you calculate your payment when filing electronically.

About the Premium Tax Credit If you purchased coverage from a federal or state marketplace, you may be allowed to claim the Premium Tax Credit6. If you opted for advanced payments of the premium tax credit to help with your monthly insurance premium payments, you must file a tax return to claim the premium tax credit even if you were not otherwise required to file.

8962

1095-A

8962

You will need Form 1095-A from your marketplace

File Form 8962 to claim the credit and to reconcile your advance credit payments

TIP

1040

Include Form 8962 with your 1040, 1040A, or 1040NR

If you opted for advance payments of the premium tax credit to help with your monthly insurance payments, your advance credit payments may be more than the premium tax credit you are allowed. If this is the case, you have excess payments that must be repaid through a reduced refund or by making an additional payment when you file your return. Tax preparation software can also help you reconcile and calculate your credit when filing electronically.
