I forgot to append my Health Coverage Exemption form (8965).

Customer Question

I forgot to append my Health Coverage Exemption form (8965). I am exempt because I belong to a health care sharing ministry. Everything else on my return is correct. How do I get the form to the IRS so that they will note the Exemption?

HelloIf you omitted the 8965 when you filed you would need to send it attached to a 1040X amended return.You will note in the reason for change section that the form was omitted on original filing.This form cannot be sent independent of a tax form so the 1040X is required.
