Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic many people have received Enhanced Unemployment payments of an extra $600 per month in addition to regular state unemployment payments. In many cases this caused people with lower wages to receive weekly income amounts that exceeded their traditional income. If this is the case with you or someone you know you need to update your income or adjust your subsidy ammount as soon as possible to avoid owing money when you pay your taxes next year. This applies to everyone who is still receiving a subsidy to pay for a Qualified Health Insurance Plan with an insurance company. If you need help calculating your income please contact me.
