How is my premium tax credit different than what I had in 2018?

Your tax credit is based on current information about your income and household size.

Help with cost is based on your expected income for 2019, not last year’s income.

That’s why it’s so important to update your application. Make changes to your income and household you expect for 2019. It's the only way to be sure you’ll get the right tax credit and other savings for the year.
