Did you enroll in HealthCare.gov? You may be eligible for a federal tax credit

stethoscope-66885__180

If you or a family member enrolled in a qualified health plan offered through a government insurance marketplace, such as HealthCare.gov, you may be eligible for a federal tax credit. The amount of the credit varies depending on your household income and can be claimed on your tax return. Alternatively, you have the option to receive all or part of the credit in advance in the form of payments to your insurer that reduce your health insurance premiums.

 
Either way, you need to file a federal income tax return. That’s the case even if you’re usually not required to file. In the case of advance payments, failing to file your tax return can prevent you from receiving the credit in future years.
To make sure you received the correct amount of the credit, or to claim it, attach Form 8962, Premium Tax Credit, to your return.
