Question: My husband and I are now legally separated - he does not have insurance but I do under my employer who does not provide for family ins. Does my husband still have to include my salary to get his own insurance now that we are legally separated?
Answer: If you are legally separated under a final decree of legal separation you are considered single by the IRS and California state law. Therefore, your husband can apply for Covered California based on his income alone. You must both file your 2016 tax return as either single or head of household - not married filing jointly.
