I need to file my income taxes; however, I have a few issues.
First of all, my two step-sons arrived in the Philippines in late May. I want to put them both on my tax return as dependents. However, we also received credit for our health insurance
through Covered CA. The boys however never received their green cards and social security cards until sometime late in November due to issues beyond our control. We had even gone to the social security office twice to have it mailed directly to the social security office yet we never received the documents until close to the end of November.
Turbotax wants me to file the 1095-A, but when it asks me what months the kids had coverage I have to leave out all months due to the documents never arriving to register them for insurance
through Covered CA and because the first 5 months of the year they were living in the Philippines, so there isn't even a way to let the government know they weren't even present in the country for those 5 months.
WHen I call the IRS, all they do is hang up the phone on me and tell me to call back later. Well, later is going to be after tonight's deadline.
Does anyone have any advice for me?
