If you had a Marketplace plan with premium tax credits
1. Find your Form 1095-A, Health Insurance Marketplace® Statement
- Find it in your HealthCare.gov account (select your 2022 application, not your 2023 application, and select "Tax Forms" from the menu on the left). You’ll also get a copy by U.S. Mail.
- Can't find it? Get help finding your 1095-A.
- IMPORTANT: Don’t file your 2022 taxes until you have an accurate 1095-A.
- Learn how to use your 1095-A.
2. Make sure your 1095-A is correct — and if not, call us
- Verify basic information about your health plan and household members on Parts I and II of the form. Find errors? Contact the Marketplace Call Center.
- Make sure the premium for your second lowest cost Silver plan (SLCSP) is correct. Learn how to check your SLCSP.
- If it’s not, use our tax tool when it’s available later in January to get your SLCSP.
3. Fill out Form 8962 to "reconcile"
- Use the information from your 1095-A to fill out Form 8962, Premium Tax Credit.
- Use Form 8962 to “reconcile” your premium tax credit — compare the amount you used in 2022 to lower your monthly insurance payment with the actual premium tax credit you qualify for based on your final 2022 income. Any difference will affect your refund or tax owed.
- Get a step-by-step guide to reconciling your premium tax credit.
4. Attach Form 8962 when you file your federal income tax return
- But don't attach your 1095-A to your return. Keep it with your other tax documents.
