How are S corp SE health insurance premiums to be reported for divorced taxpayer who must allocate health insurance premium percentage among taxpayer and former spouse?

SE health insurance premiums reported on 1095-A were linked to K-1 from S-Corporation.  Taxpayer divorced in 2018 and must allocate a portion of the advance premium tax credit to former spouse.  Entering allocations into shared policy fields on 1095-A caused an error, reporting you cannot enter allocations and link 1095-A to SE health insurance.  How do I report SE health insurance premiums for premiums paid by taxpayer and also allocate portion of premium tax credit to former spouse?

I'm not 100% sure if this would give the correct result, but if it is being allocated evenly, these are the two options I can think of.  If the percentage are not even, I think you are in trouble and would need to manually calculate everything (which is gruesome).

Option #1:

  1. Manually apply the percentage to the 1095-A, and temporarily enter that into the program.  For example, if it says $1000 and the allocation percentage is 50%, enter $500.  Link it to the K-1, but don't fill in the allocation section.
  2. Print out the tax return and look at the SEHI amount on Line 29 of Schedule 1, the repayment on Line 46 of Schedule 2, the extra PTC on Line 70 of Schedule 5, and the 8962.
  3. Enter the 1095-A as it is shown.  Enter the allocation.  Link the K-1.  Override all numbers on the tax return to match Step #2.
  4. Disable error checking, and e-file.
Option #2:
  1. Manually apply the percentage to the 1095-A, and permanently enter that into the program.  For example, if it says $1000 and the allocation percentage is 50%, enter $500.  Link it to the K-1, but don't fill in the allocation section.
  2. Print out tax return (or create a PDF) and manually fill in the allocation section of the 8962.
  3. Mail the tax return.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
