If you had a Marketplace plan with premium tax credits

FYI: Form 1095-A & your federal taxes
You should get your 1095-A form by mail no later than mid-February. It may be available in your HealthCare.gov account as soon as mid-January. Once you have it, follow the steps below.
You must file a federal tax return for 2021 — even if you usually don't file or your income is below the
level requiring you to

Find your Form 1095-A, Health Insurance Marketplace® Statement

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. See errors? Contact the Marketplace Call Center.
  • Make sure the premium for your second lowest cost Silver plan (SLCSP) is correct. See how to check your SLCSP.
  • If it’s not, use our tax tool when it’s available later in January to get your SLCSP.

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 2021 to lower your monthly insurance payment with the actual premium tax credit you qualify for based on your final 2021 income. Any difference will affect your refund or tax owed.
  • See a step-by-step guide to reconciling your premium tax credit.

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.
