Marketplace Members at Risk of Losing Tax Credits

iStock_000058231982_Large Do you have your health insurance through the Federal Marketplace? We were made aware you could be at risk of losing your advance premium tax credit (APTC) for 2016 if you did not file Form 1040 income tax return for 2014, or include Form 8962, which covers tax credits.

The IRS has reported that many recipients of this credit did not follow tax reporting requirements. If you fail to do so, the IRS says you will not be eligible for the tax credit or cost-sharing reductions next year.

We advise you to address this matter as soon as possible to help prevent you from losing their credits and possibly, your health insurance coverage altogether.

If you have not filed, we recommend you to do so immediately, filling out form 8962. For more information, visit www.IRS.gov or contact your tax professional.
