But the Treasury Department noted those people still may want to check with their tax preparers to see if they should file an amended return. In some cases they could get additional money back from the IRS if they used the corrected tax form.Treasury said it intends to provide additional information to help tax filers determine whether they would benefit from filing amended returns.
It is unknown how many people could be eligible for the relief by virtue of having received a 1095-A form with incorrect information about their health plans.
"We don't have an estimate," said Mark Mazur, assistant secretary for tax policy at the Treasury Department. "We are thinking it's a relatively small number."

The relief is more expansive than the similar relief offered last month by the IRS. The earlier relief had not included customers of state-run Obamacare insurance marketplaces, and only applied to those HealthCare.gov customers who had already filed their income tax returns based on the flawed data.
Last month, it was revealed that 820,000 flawed 1095-A forms had been sent out to customers of HealthCare.gov, which contained incorrect information about the prices of so-called "benchmark" health plans. Those benchmark places are are used to determine the value of tax credits that low- and moderate- income Obamacare customers to help pay for their own health plans.
Another 100,000 1095-A forms that contained incorrect data were sent to customers of Covered California, the state-run Obamacare exchange.
The tax credits customers receive are supposed to be reconciled on their income tax returns. If a person got too much in tax credits relative to their income, they will have to pay some of the credits back to the IRS, but if a person got too little in the way of subsidies they will be entitled to a refund.
But federal officials said Friday that the errors they are finding on 1095-A forms are not limited to the price of benchmark plans.
Counihan, the CEO of HealthCare.gov, said up to 4 percent of 1095-A forms of the exchange's customers have some kind of issue, including the "wrong coverage dates" for people's insurance. Counihan said the error rate is no unexpected given his experience running other health insurance marketplaces in Connecticut and Massachusetts.
HealthCare.gov's error rate for 1095-A forms, which is expected to be at least partially replicated on the forms sent customers of state-run exchanges, led the IRS to expand the relief it was offering Obamacare customers.
