Negative AGI?

By on | No Comments

Question: How about a loss carry forward that comes from a theft loss? This creates a net loss on line 37 of our 1040. How do we enter it on the Covered California website or the Medical website. It doesn't allow us to enter a negative number for AGI.

Answer: The CC application asks for your current income whether W-2 employed or self employed. Jeeze Louise! What did you make last month? If you start making a lot more, or a lot less, you can correct later. After personally assisting on over 300 CC applications, I can tell you that for most people, the whole AGI thing makes things more complicated than they need to be. Fuhgeddaboudit!
