I would like to claim exception A for January-July 2105 on form 8965, because health insurance was considered un-affordable. Which worksheet do I have to complete to "prove" this?
I've done the Marketplace Coverage Affordability Worksheet and calculated that my "required contribution for the month" is zero. (Line 12) Is this the right worksheet?
If you have a 1095-C, the IRS does NOT need any details from this form. You can keep any 1095-C form you get from your employer for your records.
When you come to the question ?Did you have health insurance coverage in 2015?, simply select ?Yes?.
When you come to the question "Were you enrolled in a plan from HealthCare.gov or another state's Marketplace in 2015?", select "No".
If you're covered through your job or have health insurance through the VA or Tricare, your plan isn't a marketplace plan, but it still counts as health care coverage
