Subject:  Capital gains triggering ACA subsidy payback Date:  8/12/2020  5:46 PM

My family receives government subsidies for our health insurance premiums which we get from Covered California (California’s ACA marketplace).

I’m looking to sell some stocks to cover some expenses, however my understanding is that the capital gains are counted towards our MAGI which may trigger me to have to pay back some of those subsidies.

Is there a way to avoid this?

Many thanks
