Question: I enrolled in Covered CA and opted to take all of the subsidy now rather than at tax filing time. Starting April, I will have a new job that provides insurance. When I file taxes next year, my income will be too high to receive a subsidy. Will I have to make up the difference for the full premium for the 3 months of Covered CA insurance?
Answer: Yes, you will pay, but not that way. The subsidy paid to you in 2015 will be taxed as income based on the scenario you described.
