Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Does your son have health insurance through the Marketplace?

If so, he should have received Form 1095-A, which will contain the information you need to fill out Form 8962.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

Form 1095-A for 2016 listed all zero's, but his income was $ 2,204.00 , all cash, so I thought he would be entitled to a credit, much like in 2015.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No, thanks.
Tax Professional: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 2 months ago

He would be entitled to a credit based on his income.

You copy the information exactly as it appears on the 1095-A
