2016 Tax Help: Get step-by-step instructions & tax forms

No matter how you got your 2016 health coverage — through the Marketplace, your job, or another source — you must report your 2016 health coverage status to the IRS when you file your 2016 taxes.

If you had 2016 Marketplace coverage, you’ll need Form 1095-A, Health Insurance Marketplace Statement, to “reconcile” your taxes. You should have received this form in the mail already. If you have an online account, Form 1095-A should be there too. If you didn’t receive a 1095-A, contact the Marketplace Call Center.

For specific forms and step-by-step instructions, choose the situation that best applies to you to learn about health coverage and your 2016 federal taxes.
