Reduced Personal Exemptions Have No Effect On Premium Tax Credit

As per the latest report from the IRS, it has been stated that for the tax years 2017-2026 there has not been any effect of reduced personal exemption on the individual’s ability to claim a premium tax credit of their health care. Many people were confused about it because they already know that the personal exemption of a taxpayer is a reliable thing in calculating the premium tax credit. And those who don't have enough knowledge about tax accounting needs to read this blog very carefully.

The revenue service has done exactly what was proposed in May 2020. They have not changed any of those regulations. This was because people did not say anything about it and no one requested a public hearing. That is why there was no public hearing.

As per section 151, many premium tax rules depend partially on whether the taxpayer has claimed a personal exemption deduction. For those who are not aware of the latest rules of tax accounting, here is a list that would show you the rules which are unaffected by such exemptions:

-         The requirements of income tax return filling which are associated with a premium tax credit.

-         Rules governing the way advance credit payments are reconciled.

-         Rules for computing the premium tax credit.

-         Rules that decide the eligibility for the premium tax credit.

After reading the whole statement, you will find that what we call as tax cuts and Jobs Act, P.L. 115-97 (when someone’s personal exemption deduction is reduced to zero) does not affect the premium tax credit in any way Sec. 36B. So, as per Sec. 151(d)(5)(B) the taxpayers are allowed for personal exemption (but for other purposes) under section 151.

Now, the taxpayers have to report their income tax return for the individuals who are claimed by the taxpayers for a personal exemption deduction. One thing you should keep in mind that if your name and identification number are listed in the Form 1040, you are now reported on the taxpayer’s income tax return.

The final regulations of tax accounting are applicable for the tax year ending on December 31, 2020, or the year after it.
