ANSWER

That depends on what your actual income turns out to be and your tax filing status. On your tax return, you will compare the actual amount of advance premium tax credit you received during the year to the amount you should have received based on your modified adjusted gross income, and then pay back some or all of the excess.

There are repayment limitations for those whose income is below 400 percent of the federal poverty level (see table below). If your income goes over 400 percent of the federal poverty level you will have to repay the full advance premium tax credit amount you received. (IRS, Questions and Answers on the Premium Tax Credit, 26 C.F.R. § 1.36B-4.)
