How to File Taxes with Adult Child?

By on | No Comments

Question: We are a family of 4 however my daughter, age 23,who I covered under the Covered California family plan. She files her own taxes. Do I have to claim her and her income on my taxes?

Answer: No. If your 23 yr-old daughter files her own federal income taxes in 2015, she cannot be included as part of your household for CC eligibility. If she files fed income taxes for 2014 and you included her in your 2014 Covered California coverage, there is no penalty. However, you probably received excess advanced premium tax credits in 2014 which will be reconciled when you file your 2014 return. As for 2015, you have to remove her from your Covered California account and she needs to create a CC account of her own. She will be eligible for either Covered California coverage or MediCal based on her own income.
