This is one of those unintended consequences of the PPACA
The law says APTCs are obtainable by persons with MAGI of 100%-400% [600% CA] FPL. This is a unique situation and I don’t believe Congress expected this as the norm. But the law is the law, and the IRS will either allow or disallow the APTCs.
Personally, I think the IRS will allow the APTCs since this person is obviously a “taxpayer” not a welfare recipient. Otherwise, it would make a great case in Tax Court. MAX max herr insurance services.com
