What is Form 8962?

Form 8962, Premium Tax Credit (PTC), is used to determine the amount of a taxpayer’s premium tax credit (PTC) and reconcile it with advance payment of the premium tax

credit (APTC). A taxpayer may take the PTC and his or her APTC may be paid only for health insurance coverage in a qualified health plan purchased through a Health Insurance Marketplace, or also referred to as an Exchange. As a result, a taxpayer should complete Form 8962 only for health insurance coverage in a qualified health plan purchased through a Marketplace.
