The American Rescue Plan, signed into law on March 11, 2021, includes a provision that eliminates the requirement to repay excess advance premium tax credits for tax year 2020. Go to our American Rescue Plan - Premium Tax Credit FAQ for more information.

The amount of excess premium tax credit repayment, calculated on Line 29 of Federal Form 8962 Premium Tax Credit (PTC), has a different calculation if there was a self-employed health insurance deduction claimed on Line 16 of Schedule 1 (Form 1040) Additional Income and Adjustments to Income.
