Common Mistakes in Completing Form 8962

A common mistake is entering an incorrect household size on line 1. This error can significantly impact the calculation of your credit. To avoid this, double-check the number of dependents and ensure that you include all individuals for whom you can claim a personal exemption, as defined by the IRS.

Misreporting modified adjusted gross income (AGI) on lines 2a and 2b is a frequent error. This figure is crucial for determining your credit eligibility and amount. Ensure you follow the IRS guidelines for calculating your modified AGI and cross-reference with your tax return for accuracy.

Failing to accurately calculate your household income as a percentage of the federal poverty line on line 5 can lead to incorrect credit amounts. Use Worksheet 2 diligently and refer to the correct federal poverty line figures for your household size and state.

Entering the wrong figure from Table 2 on line 7 is a common mistake. This figure is based on your household income percentage and must be accurate. Always double-check the table and ensure you're looking at the correct row and column for your situation.

Incorrectly calculating the annual contribution amount (line 8a) and the monthly contribution amount (line 8b) can result in an incorrect credit calculation. Carefully follow the instructions for these lines, and consider using tax software or consulting a professional if you're unsure.

Not properly allocating policy amounts on lines 30 through 33 when sharing a policy with another taxpayer can lead to discrepancies. Review the specific allocation situations provided in the instructions and allocate the amounts and percentages accurately.

Incorrectly calculating the repayment amount of excess advance payment on line 29 can result in owing more or less than required. Check Table 5 for repayment limitations based on your income and ensure you enter the smaller of the excess advance payment or the repayment limitation.

If you got married during the tax year, failing to properly elect the alternative calculation for the year of marriage on lines 35 and 36 can affect your credit. Only use this section if you're eligible and follow the instructions carefully to potentially reduce the repayment amount.

Entering incorrect amounts for the total premium tax credit and advance payment of the premium tax credit on lines 24 and 25 can lead to an incorrect reconciliation. Verify these amounts with your Form 1095-A and ensure they match the figures reported.

A less common but still important mistake is not entering amounts in whole dollars throughout the form. The IRS requires amounts to be rounded to the nearest dollar, so ensure you follow this rule to avoid processing delays or errors.
