Child Support – Not counted as MAGI nor is there a deduction for paying it
- Child Support doesn’t show as income on the 1040, but alimony shows on line 11, thus child support doesn’t count toward subsidies, Health Care.Gov * IRS.Gov per MAGI definition.
- Who is taking the deduction for the children?
- A taxpayer’s family means the individuals for whom a taxpayer properly claims a deduction for a personal exemption under section 151.
- See the definition of MAGI – Modified Adjusted Gross Income (CFR 36B) on our website.
- 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.
- 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.
- Alimony would be though.
- Is there Employer coverage available?
