Help with Form 1095-A

1095-A.  I received a 1095-A form with Column A filled in with premiums I paid for insurance.  Columns B and C are blank.  I entered this into TurboTax and got a message that each column needed a figure.  I called Marketplace Exchange and got the information for Column B.  In Column C I entered zeros, but still TurboTax wants a number, and I cannot proceed without a number.  I received no premium tax credits which is what Column C is for...how do I proceed?

They are aware of this error message and are looking into a solution.  You can sign up for a notification at the link below.
 
However, as a potential workaround, you could try entering just "0.01" for each month in Column C and see if that clears the error.  TurboTax rounds everything so the APTC will still end up as zero when its transferred to Form 8962.  And, the Form 1095-A that you are filling out in TurboTax is actually not sent to the IRS.  TurboTax uses that information to fill out Form 8962 and your Form 1040.  Those forms would contain the right numbers and calculations in this scenario.

Help with Form 1095-A

My son had the Marketplace premium and it did not start until March. Ok, when I finish putting the information on Form 8962, but on the 1095-A on January and February is zero across the board! But when I complete form 8962 it saying that these two months can not be 0? So, how do I get to Part I I of the document and this will help explain why there is zeros for these two months. How do I get this part of the document?

If there are no amounts at all for the row, leave them blank. Do not enter zero's

I also have tried to leave columns B and C blank but it prompts to enter an amount, when i enter zero it does not accept them.

@jmix Follow the workaround for Column C that Anthony C has mentioned above. You will need to figure at the amounts in Column B with this tool https://www.healthcare.gov/tax-tool/#/
