Entering Form 1095-C in ProConnect Tax

Your client may receive Form 1095-C if they had employer-provided health insurance coverage at any point in the year. This form is not required to be filed with their tax return, but for tax year 2018 and prior, you can use it to help calculate any Shared Responsibility Payment your client owed under the Affordable Care Act. For tax year 2019 returns, the Shared Responsibility Payment is reduced to $0, so Form 1095-C will not have any effect on tax returns.

For tax year 2019 returns

No 1095-C entry is needed, since the Shared Responsibility Payment, or health coverage penalty, has been reduced to $0.

For tax year 2018 and earlier returns:

Time-saving tip: Forms 1095-B and 1095-C are issued to taxpayers for informational purposes only and are not required to be entered in order to prepare the tax return. However, the Form 1095-C input screen can be used to conveniently calculate the Individual Shared Responsibility payment if some or all members of the household didn't have coverage for the entire year.

To report a 1095-C where all members of the household are covered all year:

  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. On the left-hand navigation menu, select Credits.
  3. Click on Health Coverage, Exemptions, and Miscellaneous.
  4. Enter a 1 in 1=entire household covered for all months, 2=no months.

To report a 1095-C where some or all members of the household were not covered all year:

  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. On the left-hand navigation menu, select Credits.
  3. Click on Form 1095-C - Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer & Coverage
  4. Complete the table for each covered individual
    • First name, Last Name, and Social Security number are required
    • Enter a 1 in (d) 1=covered all 12 months, or scroll to the right and enter a 1 in each month that the individual was covered.
