*Please Help* How do I remove form 8962 from my tax return

djrowe73 Member Posts: 1 Newcomer

The software is saying that I qualify for a form 8962 and it automatically is adding it to my return. However, I know for sure that I do not qualify for the premium tax credit (PTC) that form 8962 is requesting. I know this because the last software I used (HNR Block) also told me to file this form, I filled out the form, and the IRS denied it for the 2022 tax year because no APTC was paid for my coverage. The same situation applies this year, and I would rather not go through the pain of another rejected tax return. I would like to file WITHOUT form 8962, but I don't see a way to remove it.

Does anyone know how to remove this?

    Hi djrowe75, thanks for writing in.

    Form 8962, Premium Tax Credit, is created in our software program when information from Form 1095-A is added. To remove Form 8962 you will need to delete the input from Form 1095-A in the Credits/Deductions section under Health Insurance > Marketplace Health Insurance (Form 1095-A).
