Obamacare Subsidy Questions

Q.  My wife and I each make about $40,000/year.  If we file our taxes separately, can we each qualify for an exchange subsidy?

No. The guidelines for eligibility are determined by total household income and the number of people in the household. For a single individual, the 400 percent mark is roughly $46,000/year. For two people, it’s roughly $62,000. This makes sense, as it’s less expensive for two people to maintain one household than to maintain two separate households. Taxpayers whose filing status is married filing separately are explicitly ineligible to receive subsidies in the exchange, regardless of their income. The IRS is still considering special exceptions in cases of domestic abuse or spousal abandonment where filing a joint return is difficult or impossible. For everyone else, the rules are clear that married couples must file a joint tax return in order to qualify for subsidies in the exchanges.
