Form 1095-A documents any premiums paid or tax credits received under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and it is required of anyone who signed up for a health insurance plan on Healthcare.gov or via their state marketplace in 2014. While anyone who enrolled was advised that they would need to file this statement with their Federal income taxes, many have likely forgotten or simply don’t understand what’s required of them.
The IRS has prepared a document to advise consumers on the purpose of the form, who needs to file them, and when they should be submitted. That information is available here. The services of a tax professional may also be helpful for those who have additional questions or need assistance completing the tax filing process. There are also state and Federal customer contact centers.
