My friend has claimed her unemployed adult son as a dependent
for 2014 and 2015. He was married until January of 2015 and his wife had enrolled them in the Marketplace for health insurance in 2013.
My friend who is on Medicare
and who did support her son although he didn't live with her, just got a letter from the IRS
stating that someone she claimed on her tax return
was enrolled in the marketplace health insurance and requested her to submit a 1095-A
and the 8962 for the premium tax whatever. Sorry, I know nothing about Obama Care.
I told her that since her son was enrolled for two years that he cannot be claimed as her dependent and that she must remove him from her two tax returns
by submitting amended returns
Question ONE: Is that correct? He cannot AMEND his health insurance enrollment, so she must remove him from her 2014 and 2015 returns.
This is very complex and I will pay accordingly.
Question Two: Since her son was divorced in January of 2015 and since his wife (now ex, but they are still living together as friends and co-parenting) lost her job and she had no income
but still received the subsidy what do they do?
Question Three: They are broke, can't find any tax forms
, and haven't filed since 2012. Granted, they should be castigated severely, but what do they do exactly to correct his nightmare? Apply for Medicaid immediately. They are still covered under Blue Cross but they have a $2600 past due bill and cannot pay it.
Thank you exceedingly.
