PREMIUM TAX CREDITS INFORMATION & FORMS
The Affordable Care Act provides tax credits to lower and moderate income individuals and families who enrolled in health insurance through the Massachusetts Health Connector. These Advance Premium Tax Credits (APTCs) are subsidies that lower the cost of your monthly health insurance premiums, which HDAP/CHII may have paid on your behalf.
The amount of APTCs you received, if any, were based on the income you estimated for 2016 when you enrolled in health insurance through the Massachusetts Health Connector. If you did not receive any APTCs during 2016, you may be eligible to claim a Premium Tax Credit when you file your 2016 federal income taxes and thus may be eligible for a refund.
