Do All Capital Gains Count For Obamacare?
Do all capital gains count for ObamaCare? For example, do long-term gains count against Obamacare even if they are taxed at 0%.
Long and short term capital gains taxes impact taxable income in terms of what is counted for marketplace cost assistance. This is true even if you have long term capital gains that are taxed at 0%. The rule-of-thumb is that if income is taxable, it is counted. The rate you are taxed at doesn’t impact if income is counted. For the most part only certain types of non-taxable income are exempt.
