I have not received my 1095A form. I need to know how to have my 1095A form mailed to me, so that I may file my taxes. Or can i print my 1095 out online?
If you don't have your 1095A form you can view it online. You can also contact the Marketplace Call Center if you find any errors on your 1095A.
NOTE: This page was compiled over the years in a response to people's questions with 1095-A forms. The information below remains important. However, we suggest anyone dealing with 1095-A issues see the latest update from Treasury and the IRS issued on April 3rd, 2015. The IRS hasn't issued a specific statement this year, but the statement from 2015 will give people an idea of what sort of complexities can occur and what past official responses have been.
With the above in mind, 1095A forms aren't available until after they filed. So while you can view it online earlier than you may see it in the mail, you shouldn't expect to be able to view it any way until it is officially filed to the IRS by the Marketplace. The 1095 forms are filed at the end of January and into February, but I've heard of people getting forms as late as March.
For those in doubt, the best thing one can do is contact their state Marketplace (or HealthCare.Gov). The buck starts with HealthCare.gov filing the 1095-A form and ends with the IRS receiving it (around the same time the consumer should receive their copy), consumers don't file their own forms.
The instructions below are general directions for finding your 1095 form on HealthCare.Gov (although some users have commented with these steps not working). If you have issues please comment below and helps us clarify what is happening.
- Log in to Marketplace account
- Select your this year application (be sure you’re not choosing last year's coverage application)
- Select “Tax forms” from the menu on the left
- View or download each Form 1095-A
- All 1095-As are also available with your Marketplace messages
In some specific instances, your forms may not be mailed until March or later. In rare cases people did not have a 1095-A filed for them until after April 15th, an automatic extension should not be considered until all other options have been exhausted. In general, calling the Marketplace or the IRS and following up is your best bet for finding a resolution. Only when all of this fails is filing an extension due to 1095 forms suggested.
You have until April 15th, to file your 1040 and related ObamaCare forms.
INFORMATION BELOW FOR AFTER APRIL 15 ONLY
For those who got cost assistance, and are running out of time. Here is the information on your 1095-A (this doesn't replace filing an extension, but can be helpful in estimating your 1040 at the very least):
- The months you, your spouse, and dependents had coverage.
- Your total premiums paid for you, your spouse, and dependents.
- The cost of the Second Lowest Cost Silver Plan in your Marketplace.
- The total amount of Advanced Premium Tax Credit that was paid on your behalf.
Since you don't have to file a 1095-A yourself, if you can gather the above information you can fill out the Premium Tax Credit 8962 form without using a 1095-A. The IRS suggests: "If taxpayers experience difficulty obtaining the Form 1095-A, Health Insurance Marketplace Statement, from their Marketplace, they should review the monthly billing statements provided by their health coverage provider or contact the provider directly to obtain the coverage information, monthly premium amount, and amount of monthly advance credit payments made on their behalf."
If you are running out of time to file, you can learn more on our page on how to file without a 1095-A.
Also for those who wish to do so, you can file form 4868 for an extension of time to file your income taxes.
