Question: We have a teenage daughter who has a part-time job. Do we count her income as part of our household income when we apply for #CoveredCalifornia subsidies?
Answer: The answer depends on her income. Generally, kids who qualify as tax dependents aren’t required to file a federal income tax return or pay taxes on their income if they earned less than $6,350 in 2017. If your daughter earned less than that, you would not count her income as part of your household income.
