IRS: How to correct an electronically filed return rejected for a missing Form 8962

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service reminds taxpayers that an electronically filed tax return will be rejected if the taxpayer is required to reconcile advance payments of the premium tax credit (APTC) on Form 8962, Premium Tax Credit (PTC), but does not complete the form in the software and submit it with their tax return.

Taxpayers must file Form 8962 if any family member was enrolled in Marketplace health insurance and IRS records show that APTC was paid to their Marketplace insurance company. Taxpayers use Form 8962 to reconcile their APTC with the PTC they are allowed. This reconciliation is required even when APTC fully subsidizes the cost of Marketplace insurance, and no premiums are paid by the taxpayer.

The IRS has been seeing an increase in the number of taxpayers who are not including the required Form 8962 when using tax software to file their returns.
