I was wondering if you can claim a dependent on income.. While the dependent is under someone else’s obamacare? My boyfriend claims his sister since he helps his parent with most of the stuff. But since he was out of town working, and he wasn’t present, his parents enlisted his sister under their obamacare. Can he still claim her or does he have to have her under his insurance?
Cost assistance is based on household income, so whomever claims the dependent should also provide coverage. If he got cost assistance based on her coverage, then he should claim her. What he can do is claim credits for months she was on his plan, and claim her as dependent for those months. This is done using the Premium Tax Credit Form.
