What about Child Support?
How does that figure into Income for the MAGI Line 37* of 1040 – Subsidy calculation?

  1. Child Support doesn’t show as income on the 1040, but alimony shows on line 11, thus child support doesn’t count toward subsidies, per MAGI definition.
  2. Who is taking the deduction for the children?
    1. A taxpayer’s family means the individuals for whom a taxpayer properly claims a deduction for a personal exemption under section 151.
    2. See the definition of MAGI – Modified Adjusted Gross Income  (CFR 36B) on our website.
      1. Thus, if the non-custodial parent is claiming the deduction for the children, the subsidies would be worked out on their income, not the parent who has primary custody.
  3. So, the parent taking the deduction, would have the subsidies based on their income and deductions.  Child support would still be included in income, as it’s not deductible.
    1. Alimony would be though.
  4. Is there Employer coverage available?
    1. 9.66% Affordability Rul CFR 1.36B2  (a) (2) That might  knock out subsidies too.
