ANSWER

If you did not file taxes in a prior year, income will be verified by the marketplace through use of electronic wage data. If the information cannot be verified electronically, the marketplace is likely to contact you to help resolve any inconsistencies within 90 days. (45 C.F.R. § 155.320 (c)).
