Thanks in advance.
as you said, aslongas you have
greatly overestimated your income at the beginning of the year of 2016, then your premium tax credit can be more than your advanced premium tax credit. In this case, since you estimated your income to qualify for APTC, but didn't make enough, you don't owe back any money and can keep the tax credits you got in advance
