Important ACA Subsidy and Marketplace Open Enrollment Notice Information for your Clients
What your clients need to know about their subsidies:
Those clients who received subsidies in 2016 but did not file a 2015 federal tax return with Form 8962 to reconcile their Advanced Premium Tax Credit (APTC) will be placed into a federal tax return (FTR) group. Placement into this group may result in the loss of APTC and eligibility for CSR (Cost Sharing Reduction).

This Failure to File and Reconcile (FTR) is a refresher on IRS requirements. Issued May 2016.
