When you apply for a “Subsidy” you’ll need to estimate your income (before taxes) for the year in which you’re applying for insurance. If you are not sure, you’ll have to make your best estimate. We recommend you speak with your accountant to get your “Modified Adjusted Gross Income” calculation.
Modified Adjusted Income for most folks will be the Adjusted Gross Income on line 37 of your 1040, or 21 of your form 1040A or line 4 of your 1040EZ of your tax return.
♦ You and your spouse’s income, if you’re married and will file a joint tax return
♦ Any dependents who make enough money to be required to file a tax return
You’ll need to include:
♦ Unemployment compensation
♦ Self Employed or business (generally the amount of money you take in from your business minus your business expenses)
♦ Social Security payments, including disability payments – but not Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
♦ Retirement income, Investment income, pension income, rental income, prizes, awards, gambling winnings
♦ Generally withdrawals from an IRA (Not Roth IRA.) See IRS Form 8606
♦ Withdrawals from a 401k plan (less distributions from a Roth Account) See IRS Pub. 575
♦ Child support
♦ Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
♦ Veterans’ disability payments
♦ Workers’ compensation
♦ Qualified withdrawals from a Roth IRA. See IRS Pub. 590
♦ Proceeds from loans (like student loans, home equity loans, or bank loans)
We suggest you refer to your federal income tax return to get a quick estimate of your AGI. On your tax return, please refer to:
♦ Line 4 if you filed a Form 1040EZ
♦ Line 21 if you filed a Form 1040A
♦ Line 37 if you filed a Form 1040
Keep in mind, the subsidies are based off the “Household Modified Adjusted Income.”
