1095 A critical diagnostic

Highlighted
For one month 1095 A, Part III  has column A=zero, Column B=zero, Column C =$455.74
Critical diagnostic requires entry for monthly premium in Column A.   Should I just enter the amount shown in previous months or contact issurer  and ask for corrected 1095 A? Or is there an over-ride

Let me take a look as this Diagnostic does appear in the situation that is presented above. The diagnostic, although critical is not e-file stopping and you would be able to e-file with it.

tried -1 and it is not accepted (just a "ding" to let me know Lacerte doesn't like -1  in that place)

I have generated this diagnostic in my Lacerte:

Form 8962: Form 1095-A - Health Insurance Marketplace Statement, Part III - Household Information requires an entry for Monthly Premium in any period where there are entries for Monthly Second Lowest Cost Silver Plan (SLCSP) and/or Monthly Advance Payment of Premium Tax Credit.

This diagnostic is not e-file stopping and will allow you to e-file. It does present itself in the situation you have stated above. Let me see if there is anything else that I can see about it from the instructions.

I did not see much in the 8962 form instructions about this.

Do you mean we can file as it shown on 1095-A? That means the taxpayer needs to pay the advance premium credit when he is not enrolled in the Marketplace insurance. It sounds not fair...

Thank you Kathi_at_Intuit for your help.

For the situation stated above, it would cause and amount to show up on form 8962, page 1 line 11, column F and cause the diagnostic. This diagnostic does not stop the return from being e-filed. I do not know if they would have to pay the amount,  I would suggest taking a look at Form 8962 instructions to see what they say. I am not sure why they would have a 1095-A if they were not enrolled in the marketplace.
