Introduction to Tax Credits and Subsidies
which Help in paying your Premium
IMHO the fastest and easiest way to figure out the tax credits, subsides, APTC Advance Premium Tax Credit, premiums and coverage would be to use our complementary Calculators and Quote Engines which we believe are easier to use, save your results and better than Covered CA’s for your subsidy and tax calculations to help pay your premiums.
Please do these calculations FIRST, before emailing us [email protected] or using our scheduler to set a meeting for your FREE initial consultation or ongoing service. If you are already with Covered CA, we need you to appoint us as your agent (instructions) so that Covered CA will pay us to help you. When you have the calculation and coverage summaries in front of you, it’s so much easier to understand and for us to explain how the Affordable Care Act can help you and your family.
Please note that the Advance Premium Tax Credits (APTC) will all come out in the wash, when you file your taxes on form #8962 which attaches to #1040. That’s when you actually file what you earned during the taxable year, not an estimate.
