Most employers do not know their employees’ household incomes so the Affordable Care Act (ACA) created a Safe Harbor in which any of the following can be used to determine ‘income’.

  1. The Employee’s W-2 Wages found in Box 1
  2. The Employee’s rate of pay – hourly wage rate x 130 hours
  3. The Individual Federal Poverty Level (FPL) – $12,490 (in the 48 contiguous states and Washington, DC)
