Customer Question

I am married and do not work. I have no income I am going to file separately for my taxes. I did receive healthcare through the affordable care act. So, do I still have to file taxes.

Hi Mary,

...

No. If you don’t have to file a tax return because your income is too low, then you are automatically exempt and don’t need to file.

...

Even if you don’t have to file, you may want to file for many reasons. For example, if you had Marketplace coverage and then lost your source of income, you may be owed tax credits for the months you had coverage.

...

But no, for someone filing separately you must have $4000 of income for the need to file.

...

Let me know if you have questions
